Dennis Quinlan, K.C.


Called to the Bar: 1980
LL.B., University of British Columbia, 1979

Dennis was a founding member QA Law in 1998. Throughout his career, he has practised exclusively in the area of civil litigation, specializing in professional liability, personal injury, insurance and commercial matters. He has appeared at all levels of court in British Columbia including the Federal Court of Canada and Federal Court of Appeal and has acted as counsel in many complex mediations and arbitrations. Dennis has been a regular lecturer at continuing legal education courses involving a wide range of topics and is a past contributing author for the BC Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Practise Manual.

In 2013 Dennis was appointed Queens Counsel and in 2015 was the recipient of the Lee Samis Award from the Canadian Defence Lawyers.

Recently Dennis has decided to shift his focus to expanding his mediation and arbitration practise as mediator and arbitrator, having taken preparatory courses through Pepperdine University, Continuing Legal Education of BC and the Alternative Dispute Resolution Institute of Canada. The emphasis of his practise is insurance, personal injury and commercial disputes. Dennis is a member of the ADR Institute of BC civil roster of mediators.

Dennis remains at QA Law in the role of Associate Counsel. Outside of his working life, he can be found running slowly around the Stanley Park seawall, riding his bike out to Richmond, cross country skiing at Callaghan Valley and seeking the perfect golf swing at the driving range.
