Granville Law Group

Granville Law Group is based in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia.

The lawyers of our firm, Alina Nikolaeva and Charles Anderson have extensive backgrounds guiding clients through the complexities of business, corporate, residential and commercial real estate transactions with or without financing, wills and estate, trust and tax law and assist in resolution of Canada Revenue Agency (“CRA”) disputes or their prevention.

Such a mix of expertise serves our clients quite well in situations when a decision in one area brings about consequences that need to be addressed in another area.

Every problem has a solution – our goal is to find the solution that works best for you.

We believe in providing our clients with as much legal information as they need to pursue their personal, business and professional goals. The more informed you are, the more confident you will be in making decisions and the better prepared to follow the steps to implement them correctly.

We can walk you through the processes to keep your transactions or negotiations moving, and address any concerns you have along the way on structuring your business transactions, your estate plan or compliance reporting requirements with the government agencies.

Charles formed Granville Law Group in 2004 in Vancouver, with Alina adding her wealth of knowledge in 2014.
