Lyle Backman, Q.C.
Partner / Kamloops
Lyle has seen it all.
After 40 years as a litigator, Lyle has represented clients in diverse areas of law and at all levels of court, including notable cases, complex arbitrations and mediations. Lyle’s clients rightly trust him to get the job done because of his extensive experience and reputation for effective advocacy.
Although Lyle has seen all types of cases, these days he practices primarily in commercial and estate litigation, including business/commercial disputes and wills variation claims.
Away from the office, Lyle enjoys travelling the world with his spouse, Trudi, and catching up on current events, whether it concerns news, art, culture, sports or dining.
