Kate Siemiatycki joined Rochon Genova in 2018. She is an associate in the Sexual and Institutional Abuse and Aboriginal Rights Groups. 

Before joining the firm, Kate worked on behalf of defence counsel and the Crown in a variety of criminal proceedings.  During this time, she contributed to criminal and constitutional litigation at the Ontario Court of Justice, Court of Appeal for Ontario, and Supreme Court of Canada.   Most recently, Kate helped develop criminal justice policy for the Ministry of the Attorney General by working with Indigenous and non-Indigenous leaders to identify gaps in the existing criminal justice system.

Kate takes a collaborative and people-centred approach to legal practice, and is dedicated to ensuring that laws work for the people they serve.    She addresses client needs using political acuity, strong judgment and creativity.

Kate received her J.D. from Osgoode Hall Law School where she fought against unlawful evictions as part of the Intensive Program in Poverty Law at Parkdale Community Legal Services.  As a student, she received the Cassels Brock & Blackwell LLP Prize for Ethical Lawyering in a Global Community.

In her free time, Kate is restoring an old farmhouse and taking her dog Ricky for walks around the neighbourhood.
