"Customer care is everything for us. We want our clients to know that we delivered, and that hiring us is a significant decision and serious commitment for both the client and our firm.” Chanpreet Kooner, Trial Lawyer at Bobblaw
Civil litigation might sound like a complicated term to understand but it’s extremely important when dealing with a legal matter. What makes a difficult legal process easy to comprehend is enabling the services of a qualified civil litigator who has your best interests in mind. This is where Chanpreet Kooner, a trial lawyer at Bobblaw, fits the bill. Kooner’s work primarily focuses on a broad range of complex civil litigation matters which include real estate, commercial, construction, and personal injury. The Surrey-based civil litigator pursued engineering at Montreal’s McGill University and attended Bond University to study law.
“The main objective of Bobblaw is to provide advice, advocacy, and legal representation that exceeds expectations and produces results,” says Kooner, one of the youngest lawyers in British Columbia to be called to the bar. Bobblaw, founded by Shawn J. Bobb in 2018, also provides a full range of services in the area of family law, including prenuptial agreements, property and debt division, spousal support, child support and custody matters. “We have extensive experience in family law matters whether through mediation or in the court room,” says the young trial lawyer.
Kooner took interest in civil litigation during his articling term. “I had countless opportunities to attend court on my own and with senior legal counsel. I saw how litigators were in a unique position to provide legal services and zealous representation to their clients,” he recalls. It inculcated in him a desire to use his skills to advocate for clients in court, as a civil litigator. “It can be rewarding to help a client navigate a complex legal matter and provide a successful outcome.” Further, the practical experience Kooner brings from the construction and engineering industry allows him to tap into the diverse development and project management skills he carries to ultimately save a client’s time, money and headache while providing the best service. “I have gained significant experience at trial, in mediation, and at the negotiation table,” he adds. Kooner’s fluency in English and Punjabi also helps him communicate with different clients in their chosen language.
The role of a civil litigator is crucial, asserts Kooner. “Would you act as your own surgeon, electrician, or mechanic? Most people do not know enough about the law to appear without legal representation. Retaining a civil litigator early on in your case can potentially change the outcome,” he says. Kooner strongly believes in client satisfaction. “Customer care is everything for us. We want our clients to know that we delivered, and that hiring us is a significant decision and serious commitment for both the client and our firm.”
Besides his legal efficiency, Kooner is also an active member of his community. The dedicated lawyer often volunteers with various charities. He is a member of the South Asian Bar Association and Surrey Board of Trade; team member of the Land Use and Development Committee; and Board of Director for the Surrey Hospice Society. His social work aligns with Bobblaw’s objective to give back to the community by raising awareness for the Surrey Food Bank, a non-profit charitable organization that provides food to families living in Surrey and North Delta. The team also provides free initial consultations by inviting potential clients to bring donations for the Surrey Food Bank. “Through this initiative, we show our passion for both helping people with legal advice, and continuing to raise awareness for the local food banks,” shares Kooner.
