Desmond MacMillan

Senior Lawyer


Desmond is an experienced litigator who has seen all sides of complex disputes and utilizes his military background to problem solve and win legal battles.

Not many lawyers can boast that they were part of the infamous Rocky Mountain Rangers battalion and Desmond was a well respected leader of infantry soldiers in this proud unit.

Educated in Saskatchewan, Desmond cut his teeth in the big firms working for insurance companies and powerful corporations before eventually joining Knight LLP to form MacMillan Knight LLP in 2019. Today, his skills are available to British Columbians and Albertans and he is proud to fight for justice and fairness as he is not easily intimidated.

Desmond’s litigation experience led him to pursue specialization in Arbitration in an effort to help avoid costly litigations. He is now a successful arbitrator sought after by litigants eager to resolve issues before they spend enormous amounts of money on legal battles. He received his Q.Arb designation in 2020.
