Gordon K. Mitchell
Gord grew up in Brandon, MB. He studied commerce at the University of Manitoba for 2 years and, then, did his law degree at Osgoode Hall Law School of York University in Toronto. He was called to the bar in 1980.
Gord advises entrepreneurs and managers about day to day problems and helps them consummate business transactions. He frequently works with other professional advisors, primarily accountants and financial planners, to plan and implement tax strategies and to assess and reduce business risks. Gord is often retained by other law firms or accountants to implement settlements arising from matrimonial or estate litigation or mediation.
Most of Gord’s clients own and operate their own businesses. Gord strives to get to know his client and to learn about their business and personal situation so he can better focus on achieving the client’s goals. His professional interests include buying and selling businesses (M&A work), buying and selling apartment buildings, hotels, and other commercial real estate, setting up and reorganizing closely held corporations and trusts (estate planning), and shareholders agreements. Gord enjoys collaborating with his clients’ accountants and financial planners.
Gord’s a self-admitted dilettante who likes running, cycling, skiing, books, music, movies, hiking, and travelling.
