ABOUT OUR GUEST SPEAKERS
 

About Gurminder Sandhu
Gurminder is a trial lawyer specializing in commercial, family and insurance litigation. He is known for being a steady hand under pressure and enjoys working closely with clients to distill complex issues. Clients value Gurminder’s experience as he proactively assesses cases early, seeing if there’s a likelihood of a favourable and cost-effective resolution, or where necessary, a need to see matters through trial.

Gurminder has prepared and presented articles on civil litigation throughout his career. His peers elected him to multiple terms on CBA Provincial Council and appointed him to various CBA BC Committees, including the Provincial Court Judicial Advisory Committee. In 2021, Gurminder was elected as Bencher of the Law Society of British Columbia and appointed by the Minister of Justice to the BC Federal Judicial Advisory Committee.
