Mohit Chhibber is a lawyer at Overholt Law and practices in all of the firm's practice areas including labour relations, employment, human rights, occupational health and safety, and privacy law. He is equipped to serve clients in English, Hindi and Punjabi.

Before joining Overholt Law, Mohit practised Immigration, Refugee and Family Law at a boutique firm in the Fraser Valley. His experiences range from assisting people with a wide array of Immigration matters to successfully arguing a 3-day long international child abduction matter in the BC Supreme Court.

Mohit initially began his legal journey in India, where he was called to the Bar in 2016. Post his call, he practiced Employment, Labour and Civil Law at a boutique firm in New Delhi. Mohit has also worked with different non-governmental organizations in India, which provide legal assistance to low income families. His model project, ‘Vikalp Law Society' is still active in Delhi and provides elementary education and legal aid to the underprivileged.

Mohit's zeal to travel and practice law in another jurisdiction brought him to Canada, which he now calls home. He finished his LL.M at Peter A. Allard School of Law at the University of British Columbia in 2018 and served as the Vice President of the Graduate Law Students' Society. While at UBC, he also volunteered with the Law Students' Legal Advice Program and the West Coast Domestic Worker's Association.

Outside of law, Mohit is a theatre enthusiast and often spends his time performing with theatre groups and doing short movies. He also enjoys outdoor activities and adventure sports with having experienced Scuba Diving, Rafting and Paragliding. Having moved to Canada in 2017 and being away from his family and friends, he is grateful to have met wonderful people along his journey and adopts the same value system while serving his clients.
