Smart Thinking and Creative Litigation Solutions Since 1998

Gudmundseth Mickelson is a leading Vancouver-based boutique litigation firm. Our lawyers specialize in creating original strategies and inventive solutions for our clients in and out of court.

Founded in 1998 by Stein Gudmundseth KC and Howard Mickelson KC the firm’s practice areas include commercial, business and contract litigation; insurance litigation; government and regulatory litigation; and estate litigation. Today we focus on complex cases and high-level strategic litigation.

  • We retained Gudmundseth Mickelson to handle a multi-million dollar contract dispute.  Howard Mickelson, K.C. and Allan Doolittle mastered a complex and technical subject area and skillfully handled an intense litigation process.  Their dedication and energy was unparalleled, and we cannot recommend them highly enough.

  • Stein Gudmundseth and his team have provided brilliant litigation support to our company for a number of years. The service, value and quality of their work is second to none. They are available at any time of the day or evening to accept our calls, and jump to action when required. Stein is an expert in defending insurance and investment related disputes and we surely count ourselves lucky to have him working on our behalf. He has the unique ability to balance legal issues with commercial realities and the results he achieves for us are simply extraordinary – as a litigation manager, he makes me look good. I highly recommend Stein and his team.

  • We retained Gudmundseth Mickelson on a significant litigation matter involving a multimillion dollar project. The matter demanded immediate, intensive legal work and Howard Mickelson and his team worked closely with us to upload the technical information and develop an aggressive legal strategy to drive the litigation to a quick and successful conclusion.

  • We have employed legal counsel in many countries and for many business applications. Howard Mickelson ranks at the top of the list. Gudmundseth Mickelson never lost sight of our goals and became part of our team. Howard took the time to understand our business objectives as well as our legal case. When we entered the ‘heat of battle’ we had a clear strategy and we did not lose sight of our goals. We got the result we wanted and received excellent value for money. We unreservedly recommend Gudmundseth Mickelson LLP.

  • Andrew Gay assisted our company with two litigation matters, one involving an issue of municipal law that was very important to our housing development, and another involving a breach of contract claim we had initiated. In both cases, Andrew identified a smart litigation strategy based on a thorough legal analysis of the case. We never lost sight of the strategy and both cases were resolved to our satisfaction, the first through a victory in court and the second through mediation. Andrew and his team were always available and were easy to work with. I have no hesitation recommending Andrew and Gudmundseth Mickelson LLP.
