Legal Practice Areas:
Perminder S. Tung is a Partner at Lindsay Kenney LLP. His legal practice focuses on three areas of the law:
Estate Litigation & Wills Variation Claims
If you are a beneficiary, or a potential beneficiary, who has been disinherited or unfairly treated in relation to distribution of an estate – Perminder can analyse the will and estate and advise whether it can be successfully challenged. These claims are emotional and difficult as it often involves a beneficiary feeling that they have not been treated fairly or the executor/administrator of the estate is not fulfilling their duties.
These are delicate issues for families to deal with, and Perminder’s goal is to help you while avoiding costly court conflicts that may take a long time and result in irreparable harm to your family. If your case must go to court to be resolved, Perminder and the team at LK Law are willing to advance your rights in court.
Mediation & Dispute Resolution
Perminder is also a qualified and trained Mediator and maintains a mediation practice. He has successfully mediated hundreds of legal matters and is available to assist conflicting parties in various areas of the law: personal injury and disability insurance litigation, ICBC injury claims, estate litigation and wills variation claims, business, commercial, and construction disputes, shareholder disputes, wrongful dismissal and workplace claims, and general civil litigation.
ICBC Auto Injury Claims
In this area, he is passionate about serving injury victims and assisting them on their path to recovery and settlement. He has extensive court experience and a strong background in negotiation and dispute resolution. In the early days of practice, he represented ICBC as a defence lawyer and later switched sides to assist the victims of accidents.
In an effort to serve the community and provide people with in-depth information on ICBC injury claims, Perminder maintains a personal injury blog where he writes an ICBC Tip-of-the-Month and summarizes emerging legal trends as well as recent personal injury case summaries and decisions. He feels that the public should be better informed about their rights. In recent times in British Columbia, this area of the law has been under constant change and government intervention. Perminder is there to help victims navigate the complicated and ever changing legislative schemes.
Perminder was born and raised in the Fraser Valley region and is passionate about his roots in Surrey, BC. He completed his undergraduate degree at Simon Fraser University in 2004. He moved away and obtained his Bachelor of Laws at the University of Windsor (2008) and Juris Doctor, cum laude from the University of Detroit (2008). British Columbia weather and family brought him back to the West Coast in 2008.
Ever an active member of the community, Perminder cares deeply about helping at-risk youth and accelerating opportunities for gifted, but sometimes disadvantaged youth. He frequently speaks at community events and high schools to encourage young people to reach for the stars. His passion project is to create a community foundation, supported by local professionals, which will serve the youth of the Fraser Valley and beyond.
Recreationally, he can be found playing basketball and ball-hockey. He participates in the Hooplaw Tournament, which raises funds for a number of honourable causes.
