Unauthorized Practitioner

McLean, Kevin Alexander

On February 23, 2018, Mr. Justice Branch ordered that disbarred lawyer Kevin Alexander McLean, of Vancouver, BC, be permanently prohibited from engaging in the practice of law, regardless of whether he charges a fee. The order also prohibits McLean from referring to himself as a lawyer, retired or otherwise, or in any other way that connotes that he is entitled or qualified to practise law. Further, McLean is prohibited from commencing, prosecuting or defending proceedings in any court on behalf of others and from initiating proceedings on his own behalf without leave of the court. The court found that McLean, while suspended and disbarred, had engaged in the practice of law on behalf of third parties and companies to which he was an officer and director. The court awarded the Law Society its costs. McLean has filed an application to set aside this order.
