“Peter Mogan provides exceptional value for the fees charged when compared with the larger legal firms. We have found Peter and his team very capable in taking on complicated transactions and completing them in tight timeframes at a very reasonable cost.
Peter’s responsiveness and creativity have been extremely helpful in getting a number of complicated transactions completed when others believed that there was little hope in getting them completed in our targeted timeframe”
“Peter Mogan has been a key element of our company’s “story” going all the way back to our original incorporation in 1991. He and his team have supported our growth from a small, $1 million revenue, single-location operation to our current $300 million operation with eight different operations across North America and in Asia. In that time, Peter has gone from being “merely” our outside counsel to his current role as a key advisor to our senior leaders and a valued extension of our executive leadership team. His pragmatic business sense and thorough understanding of our history, key agreements and operating philosophy provide us with great value and resources that we have found hard to replicate with other law firms"

"Most lawyers and/or legal firms offer a strong technical legal expertise but are weak to mediocre in project management (i.e. keeping costs in line) and providing strategic support when advising on legal matters. Peter Mogan truly differentiates himself in these areas and as a result we have experienced the following benefits: faster turnaround time less management time spent in completing projects significantly lower legal costs more comprehensive and effective solutions as a result of the strategic and practical advice provided by Peter Mogan. Mr. Mogan brings big firm expertise in a much more cost and solution effective way."

"I am a partner of a Chartered Accountancy practice in downtown Vancouver. Our clients are owners and managers of companies representing a broad spectrum of the service, manufacturing and distribution industries. They require professional services rendered competently and in a timely manner. There are a many lawyers who meet if not exceed these requirements. However, there are few that have the boundless energy, and the deliberateness of keeping promises made, of Peter Mogan. Equally important, his clients have a value to him as people, beyond the monetary value of the file, and it is because of these three very important attributes, that I will refer clients to Peter before others."

"Hodder Tugboat Company Ltd. has strongly benefited from its relationship with Access Law Group. Access Law not only handled Hodder’s initial acquisition as well as its’ subsequent amalgamation with another marine entity, but it also assisted in a second marine company’s purchase.
Peter Mogan has proved to be incredibly creative in regards to business arrangements often thinking “outside the box” by examining ways to bring both sides together and create a win-win outcome. He has definite strengths in the area of strategic planning and conflict resolution. We have established a relationship of trust based on sound counsel, wise and discreet input in difficult situations, and excellent value for fees charged. Without reservation, I highly recommend Access Law Group.
Hodder Tugboat specializes in log and barge towing. Located on the North Arm Fraser River in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada, we actively tow on the southern coast of B.C. and are available to tow from the Washington coast to Alaska. We have a fleet of 5 tugs and a water taxi to service our customers."

As my need for legal advice has increased with the complexity of the transactions I am involved with, Peter has always come through with efficient cost effective advice and strategies. Peter has assisted me with establishing companies in China, Southeast Asia and South America, and has guided me through several corporate restructurings, and partner negotiations. Peter’s good relationship with the legal council of seemingly every bank in Vancouver has allowed me to complete several financings in record time without incurring excessive legal costs.
The value provided by Peter is unique in the corporate legal world. From his recent fee restructuring that eliminated the annoying incidental charges typically charged by professional service providers, to steering me clear of expensive confrontations, Peter has earned every penny of ever bill he has sent. Having seen the legal costs of several transactions from both sides I have come to appreciate the value of sound, balanced legal advice that results in significantly lower overall costs. In my opinion the hourly rate charged is not nearly as important as the final cost and the results achieved.
Peter operates with complete integrity and has a skill for guiding his clients clear of the many pitfalls that arise in acquiring or operating a business. I can recommend Peter without reservation and look forward to working with him on all my future business challenges”.

"Peter Mogan is a very insightful person. He has the rare ability to understand the legal AND business impact of any issue, and provides advice that reflects the realities businesses are faced with. Peter provides answers to most questions where most lawyers will simply provide options. Also, Peter is a kind and sensitive man that deeply cares about people and the issues they are faced with. In working with Peter, I do not feel like a "billable hour."
"I have known and worked with Peter Mogan for more than 17 years. My first exposure to him was as a partner in Manning Elliott Chartered Accountants, a medium sized firm in the lower mainland of BC. I found his work of such high quality that I began to regularly refer clients to him. My next exposure to him was in a regular monthly meeting of Christian Entrepreneurs. Finally, having moved from public practice and established my own business called Spa Utopia, there was never any question who I would go to as our corporate lawyer.
Peter has the unusual capacity as a lawyer of moving from the technical legal issues to business issues of any situation. His technical abilities are very strong, but the greatest value he brings is this wisdom and common sense. I consider him an essential part of our team, and am in regular contact over the many issues we face as a rapidly growing business with over 325 employees.
Finally, I appreciate Peter because of the quality of his personal character, and the high level of integrity that he brings to every situation he deals with. I strongly recommend him, and continue to refer business to him to this day."Ross Colello CA - Chairman & Chief Financial Officer
