Kavina practices within the Wealth Management, Elder Law and Litigation Practice Groups. On the Wealth Management side, Kavina works closely with our corporate commercial team helping medium and high net-worth individuals and professionals to secure their financial legacies through proper, tax efficient, estate and succession planning. This process involves the development of corporate and non-corporate Wills, dealing with US/CDA cross-border planning issues and Trusts. She also deals with Executors and Trustees of medium and high-net worth estates in preparing probate applications, liquidating estate assets and making distributions to beneficiaries.
On the Litigation side, Kavina deals exclusively in Estates, Trusts and Elder Law. She has experience both in and out of court with cases involving elder abuse, capacity disputes, disputes involving multiple executors, will challenges, guardianship applications and dependency support claims.
Prior to obtaining her law degree, Kavina spent over ten years in non-legal, business roles where she managed and consulted on operational and business initiatives for a wide range of clients in banking, retail, technology and other industries. Her pre-law career gives her a unique perspective as a lawyer and a solid business foundation which makes her relatable to her clientele.
