Whiteboard Law is a leading British Columbia business law firm with lawyers in Vancouver and Kelowna. We work with a select group of successful entrepreneurs and businesses to help them create value and solve problems. We do this both by educating our clients and by spending time to understand their business and their legal needs. Our top-ranked team of legal professionals has developed and refined a process to guide clients through all aspects of their business, including initial formation, financing product development or expansion, commercializing those products and, ultimately, an exit.

What We Do
Whiteboard Law was founded on the belief that there is a better way to deliver legal services.
Firm founder, Jim Mutter, created a firm that reflects a blend of his national law firm experience and his experience as a co-founder and executive of two start-up companies. He stripped down the traditional law firm practice model, refined it and bolstered the areas he knew would make the biggest impact with clients.
The result? A business law firm that’s different than most others. We hold a very entrepreneurial view – we want the same things as our clients: flexibility, convenience and efficiency. That’s why our focus is on creating value and solving problems for our clients.
And best of all – we’re virtual! The few firms that have adopted a virtual model all offer a lower pricing model and access to senior lawyers without pretension. We do that too, but we also provide additional value with our customized client service process.
A core focus of our client service process is that we provide our services where our clients want them – whether remotely from one of our many “offices” or onsite alongside the client team.
We also offer our In-House General Counsel Program as an extension of our clients’ teams.
Working With Whiteboard Law
Deciding whether you want to work with us starts with an initial call or meeting with one of our legal professionals. There, we'll get to know each other. You will have the opportunity to tell us about yourself, your business and your goals, and to learn about us and our experience and approach in working with our clients.
Because the advisor-client relationship is important to both of us, no one will be obliged to make any commitments during your initial meeting or call. You get to take the time to decide if Whiteboard is a good fit for you and your needs and we will consider whether your needs are compatible with our process.
If we both decide to work together, then we'll get you started with our onboarding process. Until that process is complete, you will not be a client of Whiteboard Law and no solicitor-client relationship will exist between us.
Understanding the Nature of Your Work
Every deal is unique but has as its foundation certain common and predictable elements. As the first step, we’ll send you a plain language summary of the work to be done, the roles and responsibilities of the various players in the deal and the key documents required. Our main objective at this stage is to demystify the deal process for you.
After you have had a chance to review and digest this information, we will connect with you to answer any questions that you might have and to give you the opportunity to tell us about the specific nature of your deal and what’s important to you. We will also provide you with an overview of the typical costs involved to complete that type of work. From there, we’ll work with you to allocate responsibilities for each part of the deal and start moving the deal forward.
