Catharine Schlenker


Catharine joined our team in 2020. A skilled litigator, her practice is general insurance defence litigation. Prior to joining Whitelaw – Twining, she worked at a general litigation law firm defending government, corporate and personal clients at the Provincial and Supreme Courts of British Columbia, at mediations and settlement conferences, and before administrative tribunals.

Catharine enjoys considering complex legal issues. Her thoughtful strategies and capacity to build strong relationships with her clients yield successful results in and out of the courtroom.

Catharine practices out of Victoria and she dedicates her personal time to her son and her love of orchids. She also sits on the board of the Lady Minto Hospital Foundation on Salt Spring Island, which she still considers home. Whenever she gets the opportunity, she loves to go scuba diving.
