With offices in Vancouver, Calgary, Yellowknife and Kelowna, our roots are in Western and Northern Canada, and we remain committed to serving these areas. However, our diverse and global client base also provides the opportunity to focus on activities in other parts of the world and to stay current on changes and developments worldwide. As a leading business law firm in Western and Northern Canada, we are perfectly suited and prepared to provide the advice and commitment required to help our clients succeed. We are here to make a difference as we have for over 130 years.

What We Value

1. A commitment to legal excellence

We believe that our commitment to legal excellence allows us to provide exceptional value to clients.  Our knowledge of the law, including its nuances and its uncertainties, leads to practical and cost-effective outcomes and solutions for our clients. We have invested heavily in our legal research resources, including one of the most experienced dedicated legal Research and Opinions groups in Canada and the largest private law library in Western Canada. 

2. A focus on innovation:

Our clients are leaders in the jurisdictions where we are located and around the world. To best serve these clients, we recognize that innovation and continuous improvement need to be top priorities. To this end, we continually revisit our service offerings, including the technologies that help us serve our clients, and have implemented a project management process to provide clients with transparent reporting that tracks work and budgets throughout each matter. We are responsive and nimble, able to deftly handle our clients’ most challenging issues.

3. A dedication to providing value to clients:

Connected to our focus on innovation at the firm, we believe that clients should receive the best value for the services we provide. In delivering value, we focus on providing legal services to achieve efficiency, transparency and predictability without sacrificing quality. We develop client service teams with the legal resources our clients need, and we staff our files with lawyers and paralegals at the appropriate level. We maintain a low management to lawyer ratio and we focus our resources on client work and less on corporate overhead.

4. A commitment to diversity and inclusiveness:

We believe that fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace benefits both our firm and our clients. Our Managing Partner, Clifford Proudfoot, also acts as our Chief Inclusiveness Officer and is responsible for leading a variety of initiatives at the firm aimed at advancing inclusiveness and diversity.
