Navneet is an associate lawyer in the firm’s Estate and Wealth Advisory Group, and joined Richards Buell Sutton in 2020. He works closely with clients, accountants, and other professional advisors to construct creative and efficient, corporate, estate, and trust-based plans. Nav aims to foster long-standing relationships with his clients that will serve to heighten and protect generational wealth for many years to come.
Nav is also a member of the firm’s South Asian Practice Group. He was born in Vancouver where he lives, and is a Punjabi-Canadian who is fluent in the Punjabi language.

Apart from his appreciation of Canada’s natural wonders, he is a big San Francisco 49ers fan, and you can often find him in California rooting for them at their home stage.
