Good lawyers are only as strong as the community that surrounds them
A founding principle of the firm was that good lawyers are only as strong as the community that surrounds them. Chapman Goddard Kagan strives to embody this objective. The St. James Chamber of Commerce (now the Assiniboia Chamber of Commerce) has been chaired by lawyers from Chapman Goddard Kagan numerous times. George Chapman Q.C., Alan Goddard, Donna Kagan and Al Jacksteit are all past-presidents of the organization.
The lawyers of the firm are also actively involved in a wide variety of service organizations such as The Rotary Club of Winnipeg, charitable organizations, BIZ zones, scholarship boards, athletic associations, artistic groups and other volunteer organizations. Our lawyers participate in the community by doing everything from coaching hockey teams to serving on the boards of large public organizations.
In addition to working within the broader community, the lawyers at Chapman Goddard Kagan are actively involved in the Manitoba and Canadian Bar Associations. This participation helps to ensure that our lawyers are always up to date on current legal trends and issues.
