Kelly Nicholson is a Chair of the Calgary Labour and Employment Group and the firm's Privacy Officer. Kelly's legal career began with a clerkship to the Court of Appeal for Saskatchewan and continued with an associate's position at a major national law firm, where he obtained a broad range of litigation experience. He has represented clients before the Court of Queen's Bench, Alberta Court of Appeal, Federal Court of Canada, Alberta Labour Relations Board, Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner, Law Enforcement Review Board, and has appeared before numerous arbitration boards, Boards of Reference, and human rights panels.

He joined Field Law in 2007, where he primarily serves clients in disputes involving labour, employment, human rights and privacy issues.
