we do things differently.

Specializing in creative, outside-of-the-box solutions for a wide range of legal challenges, we believe in gaining a deep understanding of our client’s needs and objectives to better deliver legal advice.

Rooted in Vancouver for more than 75 years, our team of over 120 lawyers, professionals and staff offers the robust resources and expertise of larger firms, while maintaining the team-oriented environment you would find at a smaller firm.

Our lawyers and staff provide responsive and innovative legal solutions for First Nations groups, private businesses and government agencies, with many of our team regularly acknowledged in peer review publications such as Best Lawyers in Canada, LEXPERT and Chambers Canada.
