Kevin Mitchell

Kevin is a Partner of Samis+Company. Throughout his career, he has practiced almost exclusively in the area of accident benefit and bodily injury matters arising from motor vehicle accidents. He has also defended various non-motor vehicle bodily injury claims. Kevin carries on a robust practice involving privately arbitrated disputes between insurers in both priority and loss transfer matters. 

Kevin`s practice is rounded out by pursuing applications to the Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal (WSIAT) in an effort to redirect certain accident benefits claimants to make their claim instead to the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board. He has argued many such hearings including arbitration, both private and at the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (including the Director`s Delegate), the Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal, various Superior Court appeals and the Ontario Court of Appeal. Kevin is a member of the Law Society of Upper Canada, the Canadian Bar Association, Canadian Defence Lawyers, the Toronto Lawyers Association and the Defence Research Institute. He has given various industry seminars on topics including resolving disputes between insurers and has published on loss transfer. 

Kevin graduated from Queen`s University with an Honours Bachelor of Science degree, received his law degree from the University of New Brunswick and was called to the Ontario Bar in 1994.
