Our Firm

With more than 520 employees, including 270 professionals, BCF Business Law is the go-to firm for business leaders, growing companies, and well-established global enterprises that have chosen Québec and Canada as a stepping stone to growth and success.


Our commitment to our clients not only distinguishes us from the competition but has earned us recognition as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies every year since 2007. Our insights into complex needs and growth aspirations make us an ideal partner for ambitious start-ups, well-established private and public companies, investment bankers, venture capital, and private equity firms. Our team knows how to bring together the right resources and connect the right partners to transform our clients’ dreams into viable and innovative businesses, while providing pragmatic and forward-looking solutions.

With its unwavering dedication to excellence, creativity, passion, authenticity, and generosity, our firm has earned the trust of organizations in all sectors of activity in Québec, in the rest of Canada, and around the world.


Our management team runs the firm like you run your business – with heart and passion. It understands the challenges of managing growth, which is why, since 2007, BCF has been recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies – the only Québec law firm to have achieved that distinction.
