Chadwick Newcombe is a fourth generation Calgarian, born in the same hospital as his father.
But for a few short stints as a child in Vancouver and Swift Current, Saskatchewan, Mr. Newcombe has lived in Calgary his entire life, and obtained his Bachelor of Arts (English) and a Bachelor of Laws from the University of Calgary, before being admitted to the Alberta Bar in 2001. Since 2001, Mr. Newcombe has engaged in the practice of law as a ligation lawyer with a general civil advocacy practice, and is currently Counsel at Kahane Law Office.

He loves theatre, music and dance, and believes that an essential part of a thriving society is a varied and exciting arts sector.
