Grant W. Gold


With a focus on creative issue resolution, be it negotiating cohabitation agreements and marriage contracts or hammering out separation agreements, Grant listens to his clients and provides them with workable solutions. He delivers discreet, professional, and experienced service. Trusted by his peers and clients alike, Grant’s practice encompasses all aspects of family law, including custody and access and child and spousal support. He is routinely consulted by other lawyers for his knowledgeable advice on estates, trusts, and corporate commercial matters that involve family law issues. He is also consistently named as a leading practitioner in family law by the Canadian Lexpert Directory and annually selected by his peers for inclusion in the Best Lawyers International® in the field of family law. A senior and well-respected member of the Family Law Bar, Grant has been practicing law for more than forty years, which is evidenced by the fact that he dictated the first draft of this bio; but, hey, we can’t hold it against him. Not just a great lawyer, he is also the head of the firm’s social committee (of one), and is a great wingman at parties. When not toiling in the “vineyards of marital discord”, Grant can be found chilling in Muskoka or skiing anywhere the snow falls.
