Yellowknife is the capital city, and the largest community in Canada’s Northwest Territories. Lawson Lundell LLP’s Yellowknife office was established in 1995, and has grown through the merger in 2002 with the firm of Gullberg, Wiest, MacPherson & Kay, which traces its roots in the North back to the late 1950s.
The lawyers in our Yellowknife office are long-term northerners with extensive credentials and experience in the North. Our group of legal professionals have a solid understanding of the needs of Northern life, including a focus on general business law, environmental, energy, oil and gas, Indigenous, administrative, labour and employment, and litigation. The growth and success of the Yellowknife office has led to the Firm being ranked as Band 1 for General Business Law in Northern Canada and Arctic by Chambers Canada.
