Vancouver, British Columbia

As one of Canada’s top business law firms, Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP (Blakes) provides exceptional legal services to leading businesses in Canada and around the world. We focus on building long-term relationships with clients. We do this by staying true to our Guiding Principles and providing unparalleled client service and the highest standard of legal advice, always informed by the business context.

Established in 1989, our Vancouver office provides advice and assistance to many of Western Canada’s most prominent and active financial institutions, investment dealers and commercial enterprises, as well as public-sector clients, such as Crown corporations, government ministries and municipal governments. Mining, forestry and resource industries are critical to the economy of Western Canada, and our Vancouver office is at the forefront of the Firm’s practice in these areas.
Our lawyers are experienced in all areas of counsel work and have advised on the most complex and sophisticated transactions, including corporate/commercial work, securities law matters, litigation & dispute resolution, financial services, infrastructure, tax, commercial real estate, employment and labour, intellectual property, environmental, trade, and restructuring and insolvency matters.

In 2018, Blakes was named the leading law firm brand for the fourth time and third year running in Acritas’ Canadian Law Firm Brand Index. We were also awarded Canada Law Firm of the Year by Who’s Who Legal for the 10th consecutive year and received the highest number of ranked lawyers of any Canadian law firm for the second year in a row in Chambers Global: The World’s Leading Lawyers for Business. In addition, many of our lawyers are continuously recognized as leaders in their respective fields in The Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory, Canada’s leading guide to lawyers.

Blakes was also named as one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers for 2018 by Mediacorp Canada Inc., an honour we have received eight times since 2008.

Serving a diverse national and international client base, our integrated network of offices worldwide provides clients with access to the Firm’s full spectrum of capabilities in virtually every area of business law. Whether an issue is local or multi-jurisdictional, practice-area specific or interdisciplinary, Blakes handles transactions of all sizes and levels of complexity.
