From the Owner
"My wife and I moved to the Kootenays 5 years ago from the big city. We wanted a better place to raise
our kids and we have found it here. We love the people and the sense of community that surrounds
us. I am still amazed by the business ventures that start up and take place here and the ingenuity and
diversity in this relatively small geographic area.
It did not take long before I wanted to make my contribution to this great community. I established
Pigott & Co in 2009 so that I could offer legal services to this community, with a special interest in
serving local business and start ups.
Before moving to Nelson, I had worked in large corporate law firms and in-house for a large company.
I also obtained an MBA in London, England. This background gave me the opportunity to learn how to
practice law with some of the top practioners in Canada on complex deals with sophisticated clients.
At Pigott & Co, I offer my clients this same breadth of experience whether they are starting their own
technology company or getting their first mortgage. I thoroughly enjoy helping people in my community
pursue their dreams. Get in touch with me anytime if you want to talk about my approach and to see if I
can help you with what you want to do.
