Nathan Wells


Nathan is developing a broad litigation practice following a successful 21 year career in the RCMP where he achieved the rank of Staff Sergeant and a Team Commander designation. Nathan left policing to pursue his passion for law. He graduated as Valedictorian of the 2020 class at the Peter A. Allard School of Law at UBC. Representing UBC with a fellow law student, Nathan won all three levels of the Sopinka Cup mock trial: the UBC Peter Burns moot, the Western Canada MacIntyre Cup; and the National Sopinka Cup, held in Ottawa, where he was also awarded Best Overall Advocate of the competition. Nathan also won the Richard R. Sugden QC prize in trial advocacy as the most outstanding student at the UBC advanced Trial Advocacy course.

Following his graduation from law school, Nathan worked for a year for six judges at the British Columbia Supreme Court as a judicial law clerk before re-joining Hunter Litigation to complete his articles and continue as an associate lawyer.

Nathan's life experience and particular skills are an asset to the blend of legal areas practiced at Hunter Litigation Chambers, particularly in the areas of civil disputes, white collar crime, regulatory investigations and prosecutions, and professional misconduct.
