Progressive, principled, and professional, Kiran Kang tackles hard cases with poise and grace, inspiring the confidence of her clients. No case is too big or too small for her as she takes all of her clients’ concerns with the same degree of seriousness and care, regardless of the issue.
Kiran enjoys serving clients by strategizing, negotiating, researching, and litigating to reach solutions that empower working people. She works with public sector union clients and individuals on a variety of labour and employment issues and has particular interest in human rights and harassment in workplaces as well as within the education sector. In addition to advising unions and their members on labour disputes and bargaining issues, Kiran regularly represents teachers, firefighters, municipal employees, and medical professionals in grievance arbitration and before their respective professional regulatory bodies. She offers reliable, insightful, sensible, and sympathetic advice.
Kiran has also established a profile as an educator on issues related to equity and inclusion and negotiations. Through this work, she regularly provides anti-harassment and cultural humility workshops to professionals including lawyers, paralegals, adjudicators, administrative and managerial staff, educators, and emergency service providers.
Kiran seeks to contribute to building a more inclusive and welcoming legal community. To this end, she serves as a mentor both within the firm and through law school networks across Ontario. She also volunteers as a mentor through GROWL (Group of Ontario Women Litigators) and SABA (South Asian Bar Association of Toronto). She serves the community in a variety of roles: as a member of the Education Law Section of the Executive of the Ontario Bar Association (OBA); as a member of the Board of Directors of Halton Community Legal Services; and as a volunteer providing pro bono summary advice through the Worker’s Action Centre (WAC).
Born and raised in the Prairies, with degrees from the University of Alberta and Osgoode Hall Law School, Kiran was called to the Ontario Bar in 2016, after articling at the firm.
When she is not working, Kiran loves spending time outdoors (especially on the water in a kayak, if possible); finding the perfect place to picnic with her family; and sourcing the best recipes to share with family and friends.
