Why the polar bear?

Nanuq is the Inuit word for Polar Bear. In Inuit mythology, Nanook was the master of bears. It was he that decided if hunters deserved success in finding and hunting the bear and he also punished those who violated important social rules.

The polar bear is considered the smartest and the most powerful of the bears. Through unique adaptations the polar bear is strong enough and sturdy enough to survive the harshest climates on the earth.


Like the polar bear, we are strong, solid and uniquely adapted to help you with your legal matter.



I have dealt with Nanuq Law on a few occasions and have always been very impressed with Marlisa and her team. I found them easy work with and great at communicating all of the answers to my questions. I Highly recommend using Nanuq Law to anyone that needs professional and reliable law services.
