About Christopher

Christopher Gibson is fascinated by the challenge of unraveling complex legal puzzles, viewing each case as a unique opportunity to apply the law in crafting efficient and pragmatic solutions for his clients.

Christopher has a robust background in litigation, having spent six years honing his skills at a national law firm. Starting as a summer student and progressing to an associate with a general civil litigation practice, he has worked on cases at every level of court in Ontario, navigated administrative proceedings, and participated in domestic and international arbitrations. Christopher not only comprehends the intricacies of litigation but also recognizes the importance of steering clear of it whenever feasible.

Christopher believes that the law, while complex, should be approachable. Christopher doesn’t simply dictate what his clients should do; instead, he works to ensure that his clients understand the issues in their cases, their options for proceeding, and works with them to move from the issues to the solution as efficiently as possible.

In his downtime, Christopher can be found engaged in the futile pursuit of tiring out Freyja, his rambunctious Australian Shepherd mix; taking his video games a bit too seriously (even earning some tournament winnings along the way) and meticulously tracking his estimated one-rep maxes in his weightlifting spreadsheet.
