65 years ago, two passionate lawyers started a law firm in the heart of downtown Vancouver after graduating from UBC law school. James Edgar Boughton, Q.C. and Leslie R. Peterson, Q.C. grew this firm into one of the biggest local law firms in Vancouver: Boughton Law. While many things have changed over the years – who could have thought of smart phones in 1949? – Boughton Law’s dedication to the city and connectivity with local communities in the Lower Mainland never has.
Today, Boughton Law prides itself with not only being able to cover our clients’ legal needs from business matters to personal issues, but also with the strong relationships we have built over the years. Be it long lasting client relationships or our affiliation with active business associations, Boughton Law and its lawyers put people first.
While some people think of 65 as the ideal time for transitioning into a quieter stage in one’s life, we are just getting started:
– In 2014, we have expanded the firm’s service offerings to include legal advice on family law related matters; a valuable addition that our clients have been taking advantage of.
– We formalized our client feedback process giving new clients the opportunity to provide their honest opinion about the legal services we provide. The comments received are an important milestone in building successful client-lawyer relationships and very valuable for improving your service experience.
– Bringing relevant legal topics to professionals on BC’s West Coast in a convenient way has been a key focus this year. From infographics to videos, our team always strives to make complex legal matters simple and understood by distributing informative resources via newsletters and our social media channels.
– In that regard, 2015 will be even more exciting: Boughton Law and CKNW News Talk 980 are announcing a new legal series that will bring relevant legal topics and breaking news to you starting January. Stay tuned!
As we continue to build our footprint on the West Coast, anniversaries like this one are invaluable to revisiting our services and approach to practicing law. The future of legal services is one that puts the client in the center and better resonates with your expectations. So we would like to hear from you: Take our survey.
Thank you for 65 great years! We look forward to many more to come.
Your Team at Boughton Law
