 “This is an exciting opportunity for our clients, our practice and our people,” said George Abakhan, President and Licensed Insolvency Trustee, Abakhan & Associates Inc. “While we will remain the same team and offer the same level of dedication to the people of British Columbia, our clients will now have access to a number of additional resources and services from a national network of Licensed Insolvency Trustees and financial advisors.”
