Gehlen Dabbs: new brand – new website

Marni Macleod

Gehlen Dabbs is a downtown Vancouver law firm focused on providing responsive and practical advice on commercial matters, with an emphasis on insolvency solutions and commercial litigation.  They also happen to be a leader in housing co-operative law and regularly help clients address strata property disputes.

Gregory Gehlen and Geoffrey Dabbs contacted Skunkworks to help them refresh their brand and build a website that conveyed the firm’s bold personality.  Gehlen Dabbs prides itself on finding the opportunities in adverse situations and they wanted a web presence with a positive look and feel.  We chose blue to visually express the firm’s serious, business-minded approach and accented it with orange to illustrate their optimism and commitment to finding creative solutions for their clients.They were also interested in sharing information about their practice through a blog. We gave them both a blog and a content management system to allow their lawyers to add material of interest to their clients.


As litigators and problem-solvers the firm’s lawyers are personable and engaging. They were also very aware of the need to provide straightforward, easily accessible information for clients and prospective clients many of whom would be dealing with very serious and stressful matters.  Working together we gave them a user-friendly format to showcase their no-nonsense style and in exchange they were kind enough to grant us considerable freedom on the design side – for which our creative team is eternally grateful.

We are very pleased with the results and we invite you to visit the new Gehlen Dabbs website.
