At Borden Ladner Gervais (BLG), our commitment to excellence applies to everything we do. We understand that the professional and service excellence we offer to our clients is dependent on our team - our students, support staff, paralegals, patent agents and experienced legal professionals. At BLG, it begins with exceptional people.

A dynamic, full-service national law firm, BLG is the top-listed firm in The Best Lawyers in Canada®, a position the firm has held for five consecutive years. BLG has more than 750 lawyers, intellectual property agents and professionals working in Ottawa, Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, and Montreal.

We offer an exceptional and outstanding experience for students and associates to launch and develop their careers. Training begins with the Mentoring Program and Professional Development Program, designed to provide students and associates with coaching, feedback, collaboration and challenge tailored to individual strengths and interests.

Our investment does not stop there. As part of our commitment to providing top-tier legal services, and to facilitate the path to partnership, we created the Professional Excellence Program - a unique, nationally co-ordinated initiative that encompasses substantive legal training, skills development, practice and client relationship management, as well as knowledge management - ensuring that our students and lawyers develop the skills necessary to serve our clients.

At BLG, we believe that professional development extends beyond the walls of the firm. We actively encourage all members of BLG to get involved in their communities through many of our philanthropic efforts, such as BLG Reads to Kids. We also have a thriving pro bono practice and are proud to foster an environment in which lawyers can help improve access to the justice system, make the communities where we live better places, and make a profound difference for people and organizations that otherwise would be unable to access the legal system. BLG has received numerous awards for its pro bono work. The 2015 Benchmark Litigation Canada Awards recently honoured Daniel Urbas, and his team with the Pro Bono Firm of the Year award for their work in the internationally recognized Luka Rocco Magnotta trial in support of the victim, student Lin Jun’s family.

At BLG, diversity and inclusiveness are critical to our success. Our workforce reflects the diverse and multi-cultural community in which we operate. Our ability to draw on a variety of perspectives enables us to provide innovative, pragmatic and efficient legal services to our clients. We have always recognized the importance, value and effectiveness of individuals working in a collegial atmosphere with true team spirit. Cooperation, collegiality, loyalty and mutual respect are central pillars of our firm's core values.
