Chad Olson


Chad is an articling student at BLG’s Calgary office for 2022-2023.

Prior to law school, Chad worked in Non-Destructive Testing where he inspected various components used in the construction of pipelines and refineries in Alberta. During this time, Chad served as a volunteer youth football and hockey coach in Calgary. In law school, Chad participated in student legal services, acted as a moot mentor to first year students, and served as the captain of the faculty’s hockey team, the Tortfeasors.

Chad chose to article at BLG after meeting many of the firms students and associates during the recruitment process in law school. It was apparent that BLG would provide a tremendous opportunity to join a diverse team of professionals, and take advantage of the exceptional mentorship programs available to students.

In Chad’s spare time, you can find him exploring the Canadian Rockies, playing golf and hockey, hanging out with friends, obsessing over his fantasy football lineup, and searching for his next travel destination.
