Founded in 1984, Watson Goepel LLP is a mid-sized Vancouver-based law firm with 30 lawyers offering legal services across a diverse range of practice areas.
Our insurance law practitioners serve the needs of Canadian and international insurance companies with a unique combination of expertise, dedication, and cost-effective representation.
We are committed to helping clients develop proactive strategies to manage their litigation portfolios. We do this by alerting our clients to potential issues and by providing timely reporting and analysis of opportunities to seek early resolution of claims.
Our firm’s multi-disciplinary practice allows our insurance team to draw on the experience of real estate, corporate commercial or family law practitioners for their expertise when issues present themselves which are outside of the typical issues that arise in insurance law disputes.
