Our Founder

Mahta’s legal career stretches over three continents. At the onset of her career, Mahta developed her legal and business acumen working in-house for a publicly traded multinational company headquartered in Kuwait. She then moved to England where she worked for a global law firm and was called to the roll of Solicitors of England and Wales in 2008.

Following her return to Vancouver in 2012, she requalified as a Barrister and Solicitor of British Columbia and continues her practice on the North Shore.

Her core practice areas include mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance and restructuring, general corporate and commercial matters, estate planning and estate administration.

Client Testimonials

“The service, professionalism, and general assistance I received when incorporating three companies at the same time I am sure will not be bettered. I specifically remember sending an email at 30 minutes past the office closing time and receiving not just an email but a telephone call as well! This is just one of the many examples of Mahta and Mivechi Law going above all my expectations and hitting the mark.”

I would highly recommend their services.”

Mahta helped us with the completion of all required corporate documents, shareholder agreements, and various other government filings with respect to our new company. At all times Mahta was extremely professional and provided timely and cost-effective legal services. We couldn’t recommend her enough to other prospective clients. Mahta’s corporate legal knowledge is second to no one and we will absolutely be back if and when we require further help with our corporate legal needs.

“My family began using Mahta’s services years ago after we formed our family company and family trust. My parents couldn’t have been happier with the excellent services provided. I have now taken over the managing role in the business and have gotten to know Mahta myself. She provided exceptional service during a very difficult process after my father’s passing. Not only did she handle all the business affairs and the family trust so efficiently and thoroughly, but she also took the time to make me feel like a valued customer and not just another file. Being so new to my role, Mahta took the time to explain to me the things I needed to know about while making me feel confident that she was seeing to the bigger picture items beyond my scope, which relieved a huge burden.

I look forward to working with Mahta for many years to come and would recommend her services and the services of Mivechi Law to everyone.”

Taryn Bruckshaw

“I am very happy that I was recommended to Mivechi Law for my estate planning needs. I had never completed a will or any of the related legal documents before (despite many starts and stops) and so I wanted a law firm who would keep me accountable to complete this essential life management process. Mahta was very thorough in her explanations and answered my many questions over the time we worked together. I recommend her highly. Not only did she provide a prompt and efficient service, but she also showed great empathy and understanding as I considered the decisions I needed to make.”

“Thank you Mahta for the timely and helpful legal advice and services you provided us on my mother’s estate. Although the estate was quite small it was a bit complicated and added to that there were various beneficiaries to her estate. You guided us through the issues and made the settling of the estate a smooth process and it was all handled in a professional manner.”

Charles Richardson

“Mahta Azarakhsh was a pleasure to work with especially when navigating a difficult/sensitive situation for my family. Mahta was professional, responsive and thorough. Any and all questions I had were answered promptly no matter how trivial. I truly felt that our best interests were being looked out for and there was always full transparency. Just like most people, I would like to avoid most legal proceedings however, if I ever find myself needing legal representation Mahta Azarakshs will be my first call.”
