About Us


Dosanjh Ladner Arora, formerly Dosanjh Law Group, has been a pillar in British Columbia’s legal community since 1979 when Mr. Ujjal Dosanjh P.C., K.C.* opened his private law practice in Vancouver, British Columbia. While Mr. Dosanjh refocused his attention to serving the community, including as Attorney General, Premier of British Columbia and subsequently as Federal Minister of Health, his sons Aseem and Pavel anchored the firm as partners after being called to the Bar of British Columbia in 2001 and 2002 respectively. Aseem and Pavel have had a significant impact on the legal profession in British Columbia, including with Aseem having served as the President of the Trial Lawyers Association of British Columbia and conducting numerous trials, and Pavel being recognized as one of Vancouver’s top lawyers and appearing successfully before the British Columbia Court of Appeal. The Dosanjh name is synonymous with quality, reliable, and caring legal service.

About Us


Paul Ladner joined the firm as an articling student in 2014, was called to the Bar of British Columbia in 2015 and became partner with the firm in 2018. The practice of law, and community involvement and development is embedded in the fabric of the family lineage of the Ladner name. The legal profession spans over three generations in the Ladner family, with Mr. Ladner’s great grandfather, Leon Ladner, who also sat in the House of Commons, founding the law firm Ladner Downs in 1911, his son and Mr. Ladner’s grandfather, Thomas growing that firm to one of 125 lawyers, and eventually merging to create one of Canada’s largest and most reputable firms. Mr. Ladner’s ancestors were also the founders of the Town of Ladner. Paul continued to surround himself with the practice of law well before starting law school and becoming a lawyer. Paul started working as a clerk in 2006 at a highly reputable litigation firm in Vancouver, gaining valuable practical experience for a number of years. Paul is a Harvard Law School trained negotiator, with a sharp attention to detail and leaves no stone unturned when serving his clients.
