Lindsay Kenney LLP was founded in 1980 but the firm was actually conceived six years earlier, in 1974 over a bottle of scotch in front of a smoldering fireplace in a small Vancouver house -when the original four partners were in first year law school at UBC.
Frank Potts, Rick Lindsay, Julian Kenney, and Kirk Poje agreed to name their new firm Lindsay Kenney.

Over 30 years later, founding partners are still heading the firm. Frank Potts leads the General Litigation Department. Kirk Poje presides over the firm's Corporate Commercial empire in Langley. Terry Dunn, a partner since 1982, practices banking law in the Vancouver office and Managing Partner, Kelvin Stephens has been managing the firm since 1996.
Many others have contributed significantly to the firm's growth and success: partners, associates, management, paralegals and administrative staff. We have been fortunate to have first rate support staff, many of whom have been with us for decades. Others, having made their contribution, left to go to law school and are now practicing law or, in at least two cases, have gone to the Bench. Some lawyers who articled here are now partners at Lindsay Kenney. Others have gone on to be partners at other firms or are with various government agencies-and some have even banded together to set up other successful law firms.
There is simply no question that without the help and assistance of many people, Lindsay Kenney LLP, if it existed at all, would not be the firm it is today.
And although the two partners whose names are on the door have moved on, Lindsay Kenney remains the same firm that began back in 1974 with an epic fireside chat.
