BCF’s Story

In 1995, in Montreal, nine individuals, determined to transform the way business law was practiced, founded Brouillette Charpentier Fournier. Quebec companies and young legal talent immediately embraced the firm’s pioneering approach which led to rapid growth and a name change to BCF in 2002. In order to meet the continuing demands of a growing clientele, BCF then opened an office in Quebec City in 2001 and another office in Paris in 2018.

With more than 500 employees, BCF is now one of the most important full-service business law firms in Quebec and Canada. BCF has gained the trust of individuals operating businesses in all sectors of activity throughout Quebec, across Canada and internationally by providing services based on the core values of humility, creativity, generosity, intensity and sincerity. Its privileged relationships with highly respected law firms in cities around the globe enable BCF to represent clients anywhere in the world.


We are committed to being creative and flexible when setting a fee arrangement tailored to your needs, constraints and priorities. Traditional or alternative fee arrangements can be put in place, such as hourly billing, blended rates, fixed fees, strict budgets, volume discounts or contingency fees.
