We do business with a collegial attitude and work hard to grow our client relationships. What does that mean for you? Expect to be treated with respect while receiving diligent legal advice and being charged fairly for our services.

 

Background

Boughton Law’s origin dates back to 1949 when James Edgar Boughton, Q.C. and Leslie R. Peterson, Q.C. started their own practices in the heart of downtown Vancouver after graduating from UBC law school. A couple of years later, Jim and Les joined forces to grow the firm into the full-service law firm that it is today.
