ABOUT OUR LAW FIRM


Twin River Law LLP is a law firm based in Lethbridge, Alberta serving individuals and small to medium sized businesses from across Canada. We are not a general practice law firm. Instead of trying to be everything to everyone, our practice is limited to a few areas of the law. By focusing on what we do best, we’re able to stay on top of the latest legal developments and serve you better.

OUR LAWYERS

Mike Pollard

Litigation and Employment Lawyer

A litigator and employment lawyer, Mike is no stranger to high-conflict situations.  Clients appreciate Mike’s work ethic, honesty and deep understanding of his practice areas.

Mike’s legal practice took root under the mentorship of two of Southern Alberta’s premier litigators and he cut his teeth litigating cases destined for trial. Now, with extensive trial experience under his belt, Mike continues to seek out difficult cases, focusing his practice on bet-the-farm cases with complicated factual and legal issues. Mike’s litigation practice focuses on employment, construction, fraud, intellectual property, shareholder and contract disputes.

When he is not litigating, Mike helps clients navigate thorny employment law problems such as executive contracts, dismissals, human rights obligations, duty of fair representation complaints and non-competition and non-solicitation agreements.

David van Moorsel

Business Lawyer & Registered Trademark Agent

A business lawyer and Trademark Agent, David’s focus is on the success of his clients. That means helping them to get deals done while at the same time minimizing risks to their business.

David’s law practice is all about business and corporate law. He acts for clients of all shapes and sizes ranging from small mom and pop businesses with conventional legal problems to leading edge technology companies facing complex business and intellectual property law issues. His experience in a broad range of industries including agriculture, construction, information technology, manufacturing, oil and gas, and a number of different services make him well positioned to assist clients with legal problems both old and new.

David believes that his role as a trusted advisor is not only to help clients deal with legal issues as they arise, but also to identify and prevent potential issues from becoming actual problems. He recognizes that this requires good communication and a clear understanding of his clients’ businesses. That’s why he keeps in regular contact with his clients and often meets with them at their offices. This hands on approach and David’s focus on quality legal work are appreciated by clients both old and new.
