HHBG Lawyers
Rosie Schlagintweit
Lawyer

I equip clients with knowledge of their rights and advocate for a fair resolution of workplace issues.

My practice focuses on employment, human rights and labour law. I take pride in assisting clients who are facing workplace issues and strive to build relationships based on mutual understanding and trust. Prior to joining HHBG, I articled and worked as a litigation lawyer at a national firm in Vancouver, where I focused on general commercial litigation and employment law. I gained valuable experience working in all aspects of litigation and have appeared before the BC Supreme Court and Provincial Court. I have also assisted with matters before mediators and the BC Human Rights Tribunal.

I was born and raised on a farm in Abbotsford. After high school, I moved to Vancouver where I completed an undergraduate degree at the University of British Columbia. During my time at UBC, I was a proud member of the varsity volleyball team. After completing my undergraduate degree, I decided it was time to experience a true Canadian winter, so I moved to Edmonton to attend law school at the University of Alberta. I graduated from law school in 2018 and was called to the bar in 2019. I am a member of the Canadian Bar Association and the Vancouver Bar Association.

In my spare time, I enjoy kiteboarding, cross-stitching and exploring beautiful British Columbia.
