Administrative Contact

Jaclyn Grace

Kris has spent much of his legal career as a litigator. He joined HMC in the summer of 2024, after working at a boutique firm in Calgary. His practice has been focused mainly on Construction Law, Insurance, Professional Negligence, and Employment Law. He has appeared at all levels of Court in Alberta, as well as mediations and arbitrations.

Before this, he spent over a decade in Vancouver as an actor, director, and writer. Kris appeared on such TV shows as ArrowOnce Upon a Time, and Intruders. He also wrote, directed, and acted in a short film, Fall of Night, which won a commendation at the Canada Short Film Festival.

Kris received his Bachelor of Commerce (with Distinction) and Law Degree from the University of Alberta. He currently sits on the Board of Directors for the theatre company, One Yellow Rabbit.

Outside of work, Kris enjoys golf, tennis, travel (Easter Island and Petra, Jordan being two highlights), and spending time with his family and new fiancée.
