BLG has a legacy of ‘firsts’. BLG is Canada’s oldest law firm, but the firm is also amongst the most innovative, being one of the first in North America to implement client service standards. BLG consistently receives numerous legal industry recognitions for innovation in client service and value. BLG goes beyond legal to consult and advise in a digital world.

Outside the firm’s walls, BLG contributes to communities across Canada through its national pro bono program, its national BLG Reads to Kids literacy program, and supporting the charitable efforts of its members through fundraising and volunteer contributions.

BLG provides resolutions and solutions to a wide range of clients internationally in virtually every area of law. Special expertise includes mergers and acquisitions, infrastructure and public-private projects, financings, international trade law, and commercial litigation and arbitration. BLG has acted in international banking transactions (including sovereign risk lending); international insolvencies, liquidations and restructurings; international joint ventures, reorganisations and acquisitions; commercial contracts; and international and multi-jurisdictional disputes.


Diversity:

BLG believes that diverse and inclusive teams drive today’s successful businesses. Its employees are accepted, respected and supported, regardless of gender, gender identity, race, religion, disability and/or sexual orientation. As Canada’s law firm, BLG champions diversity and inclusion in its workplace and in the wider legal community.
