Rubyna Jinnah
Director of Operations

I am empathetic and responsive to the needs of my staff because I understand and have had the responsibility of working in those roles throughout my career.

At HHBG, I have been able to work in my dream job with people I respect, admire and appreciate.  My responsibilities include the direction of staff and administration.  I have worked in this senior position with the firm for over five years, and I bring with me over twenty years of legal experience.  As a business manager, I am responsible for the direction of all operations of the firm and help drive the success of the business.  I am also the primary initial point of contact that potential new clients have with our firm.

In my career, I have worked for multiple law firms.  I bring to HHBG a wealth of knowledge as a former paralegal and legal administrative assistant, as well as invaluable experience in the management of a law firm.  I have obtained both my Legal Administrative Assistant and Paralegal Certificates from Capilano University.  In 2014, I also earned certificates in Human Resource Management and Business Management from BCIT, graduating both programs with distinction.  I am a long time member of the British Columbia Legal Management Association, and have recently been appointed Chair of their Small Firm Subsection.

Outside the firm, I have served two terms as a member of the Quality of Life Improvement Program in the Ismaili Community.  I am also active in the World Partnership Walk annual fundraising activities for alleviating global poverty.  In my spare time, I love to Zumba, travel, read and spend time with my husband exploring the beauty of British Columbia and the world.
