The Firm

Our History

In 1977, just three years into his legal career, Ken Gibson took a leap of faith and put his last name on the door to his own law firm, establishing GIBSONS LLP.

It is from humble beginnings as a young, determined lawyer that Ken has built a remarkable legacy, one of trust and loyalty known to many across Ottawa and the region.

“I consider my clients’ problems to be my own. I pour my heart and soul into every issue to ensure we’re supporting a favourable outcome for our clients,” says Ken.

Our Experience

Today, we’re proud to say many of our clients are the children or grandchildren of those whose trust we earned nearly 40 years ago.

Our commitment to providing the utmost in client service permeates the firm and our every action. With unparalleled communication, honesty, respect, and responsiveness, GIBSONS LLP has earned significant clients from across the National Capital Region.

There are many milestones which have shaped our firm to be what it is today, including earning high-profile clients who have helped shape Ottawa as it is today.
