Lawyers with Certificate of Permission to Act
A Certificate of Permission to Act entitles a lawyer who is not a member of the Law Society of Yukon to represent client(s) on a specific case or matter for a specific period of time. There is no limit to the number of Certificates of Permission that a lawyer may hold at one time. The Law Society may be contacted to provide clarification, subject to privacy concerns, regarding the exact matter(s) on which the lawyer is permitted to act.
Find a Lawyer by Area of Practice
The Law Society frequently receives requests from the public looking for legal assistance in a particular area of law. Lawyers entitled to practice law in the Yukon have been provided with the opportunity to voluntarily identify the areas of law in which they practice. This list is not inclusive of all lawyers who are entitled to practice law in the Yukon but includes only those who have volunteered this information. The Law Society in no way recommends or endorses the lawyers on the list. For mediation and arbitration, the lawyer also provides these services alongside their practice of law.
If you have searched for a specific lawyer and they do not appear, please call 867-668-4231.
