× Wills, probates and estates
Wills, probates, and estates are complicated matters. Families come in all different shapes, sizes and with their own baggage. British Columbia has some of the most unique and adaptive laws when it comes to what you can do with your property when you die, or what to do when you have been left out of a will that you believe you were supposed to be in. If you are making end of life plans and wish to have a strong and precise will or power of attorney, or if you are recently dealing with the loss of a loved one and are now wondering how to probate their will, Klassen and Company can certainly help.
Starting a business? selling a business? buying a business? incorporating a company for your personal and business purposes is often the prefferred way to go and usually decreases financial and legal risk over operating a sole proprietorship as your personal self. Klassen and Company has offerred incorporation and corporate annual record services for decades and would be happy to help.
× Property Conveyancing

Ease the burden and decrease the likelihood of being on the end of a collapsing deal by having us represent you in the conveyance of your next real estate purchase.
× Administrative Law
Administrative law deals with all facets of disputes where a public body such as a licensing board, university, union, or other granting agency has issued a private person a citation, fine, prohibition, or other such non-criminal charge or imposition. If you are facing a hearing or a decision by a public body that could impact your ability to grow your business, continue to practice, or to continue in your livelihood, give us a call. This field can be confusing and highly technical.
Not all decisions of a court can be appealled, not all decisions should be. Appeals are not cheap, they are not fast. But if you have been dealt a court decision from the provincial or supreme court of British Columbia that you are struggling to agree with or have a need to appeal give us a call.
