Legal Team / Kirk Wirsig

Kirk has practiced in the area of civil litigation since his call to the bar in 1986. His practice primarily focuses on the litigation of insurance claims on behalf of individuals whose benefits have been denied. In the course of his career, Kirk has represented well over two thousand individual British Columbians from all walks of life who have been denied insurance coverage of all types including disability benefits, life coverage, collateral mortgage coverage, critical illness and fire loss. If your claim has been denied, he can help.

Court of Appeal and appearances in all levels of Federal Court. He has numerous precedent setting decisions in his preferred areas of practice and is a frequent speaker at legal conferences.
