Guelph History

The roots of Miller Thomson’s Guelph office reach back to 1898 when Robert Lachlan McKinnon started practising law in the community. As one of the oldest and largest law firms in Guelph, it has grown substantially under the influence of Miller Thomson’s national partnership. With a staff of dedicated and highly qualified professionals, the firm continues to enjoy an excellent reputation within the Guelph community.

Miller Thomson Guelph comprises the Firm's Southwestern Ontario region offices managed by Gordon L. Robson.


John M. Kearns moved the firm he founded in 1902 from Arthur, Ontario to Guelph.


The two local firms forged a partnership to become Kearns McKinnon that lasted 53 years.


Kearns McKinnon merged with Miller Thomson LLP.
