Kimberly Precht is an Edmonton-based lawyer practicing primarily in the areas of professional regulatory law, general litigation and labour and employment law. She works with a broad range of clients, including individuals, businesses of all sizes, public institutions, and post-secondary institutions, and provides support to employees and employers across a variety of industry sectors.  

As a lawyer, Kimberly focuses from the start on understanding her clients’ context and goals. Kimberly enjoys learning about the challenges and opportunities clients face, and always strives to figure out what is really at stake for her clients. She works hard to ensure clients fully grasp relevant legal issues, and helps craft and implement solutions that are legally and practically sound.  

Kimberly is able to assist clients with a wide range of legal matters, including:

  • Consulting and advising on termination and layoff situations for both employers and employees
  • Assisting with the development of human resource policies for small to mid-sized businesses
  • Assisting professional regulatory organizations in areas such as registration, discipline, policy, and governance

Outside the Office

Before studying law, Kimberly worked on a vegetable farm, at a grocery store, as a river guide, and as a performer and coach with a local circus company. She also lived and worked in Cairo, Egypt, for a year when she was 18. Kimberly continues to be involved with Edmonton’s Firefly Theatre & Circus. She has an abiding interest in legal issues related to water and land use, which is perhaps unsurprising given how much Kimberly enjoys walking, running, biking, and canoeing through Edmonton’s river valley and the province’s wild places.
