Malfair Law was founded in 2007 to provide legal services to business clients. While much of the firm's work is with clients located in Northern British Columbia, Malfair Law serves clients throughout British Columbia. The objective of Malfair Law is to provide clients with the highest calibre of personalized service and legal advice that is practical, meaningful and useful.
My philosophy is that lawyers should act as facilitators for clients trying to achieve business objectives. One of the principal roles for lawyers is to assist clients with the allocation and management of risk in connection with their business activities.
Principal clients are active in the bioenergy, mining and carbon offset generation sectors. We act for both private and public entities.
Gil Malfair, the principal of Malfair Law, is a solicitor with over 20 years of experience. Prior to establishing Malfair Law, Gil worked as a lawyer in private practice in Vancouver and Calgary. He learned his skills and gained invaluable experience in Vancouver at a business law boutique and later at a leading regional British Columbia law firm. Following that time, Gil moved to Calgary and became a partner in the Securities and Capital Markets Group at one of Canada's largest national law firms.
Gil has a commerce degree from Edwards School of Business at the University of Saskatchewan and a law degree from the University of British Columbia and is a member of the law societies of each of British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan.
