Ksena is a partner at Bishop & McKenzie, with a practice divided between foreclosure and insolvency matters, and family and matrimonial law.

Her clients in the enforcement of residential and commercial loans and unsecured debt include mid-size and large institutional lenders. In family law, her clients include separated and common-law spouses, and grandparents who wish to continue being a part of their grandchildren’s life when the parents separate. Ksena is also well-versed in foreclosure law and presented the Foreclosure Fundamentals course through the Legal Education Society of Alberta (LESA) in 2017.

Both areas of Ksena’s practice draw on her innately analytical and objective approach, while her strong organizational abilities move files forward quickly. With a pre-law background in commerce, and additional training in Alternative Dispute Resolutions (including mediation and collaborative law), Ksena delivers her clients practical advice, as well as determined advocacy. She was recently awarded the 2015 Outstanding Volunteer by Pro Bono Law Alberta for her hard work and dedication to the QB Amicus Program in Calgary.

As the mother to two exuberant sons, Ksena only occasionally has time to pursue her lifelong love of sketching and painting, but she’s enjoying the current era of family-friendly hiking trips, downhill skiing outings and travel.
