The future of law since 1823

BLG started as the dream of one lawyer in Montréal 200 years ago. Since then, we’ve helped our clients and communities build, innovate, protect and grow, using our collective intelligence and smart anticipation to go beyond what’s expected of a law firm.

Today we are more than 800 legal professionals from coast to coast — former Supreme Court justices, next-generation leaders, scientists, engineers, industry experts and internationally respected advocates — each of us providing the nation’s founding institutions and innovative start-ups alike with the advice they need to achieve their ambition.
