For more than a century, we have provided innovative yet practical legal services to a very loyal client portfolio and have expanded that client base through developing new practices such as Climate Change and Video Game Law. We feel proud of our heritage yet we embrace change to meet all of our clients’ needs − today, and over the long term.

With experience in virtually every area of the law, we regularly advise and represent clients with respect to their personal and business ventures in Canada and around the globe. Our lawyers, paraprofessionals and staff are committed to excellence in the practice of law in all jurisdictions.

  • DLA Piper (Canada) LLP has earned the highest peer review rating from Martindale-Hubbell.
  • Our practitioners receive consistent recognition in Lexpert’s Canadian Legal Directory, ALM 500, Rising Stars and Guide to the Leading 500 Lawyers in Canada as well as Best Lawyers in Canada, Chambers Global, The Practical Law Company’s Which Lawyer? and Euromoney’s IFLR 1000 – Guide to the World’s Leading Financial Law Firms and IFLR Expert Guides.
  • We have received Mediacorp Canada’s BC’s Top Employer distinction every year from 2007-2017.

Clients can feel confident knowing that our services are of the highest caliber and integrity.

Beyond Your Practice

As we honour our commitments to our valued clients, we also respect the importance of family, friends, personal health and community involvement. Many of our lawyers balance a busy legal practice, pursuits in writing and lecturing, devoting time to boards of charities, corporations and trade organizations, pro bono matters and, of course, their families. We work with our lawyers to achieve balance so that they will meet clients' expectations consistently and help clients achieve their critical objectives.


We understand the demands of our clients. While supporting the development of your career and your practice, we provide internal resources to help you get the job done.

Junior Associates, Students, Paralegals, and Legal Administrative Assistants are either assigned to you or your practice group to help support your practice so that you can concentrate on strategic planning with your clients, your colleagues and/or pursuing opportunities for business development.

We also have professionals who focus solely on knowledge management and research to conduct more complex projects, as well as a full roster of administrative staff to assist with important, everyday tasks.

Professional Development

We support our lawyers’ professional development through CBA subsection memberships, the attendance of courses and workshops to accumulate CLE credits, lecturing, writing and other community involvement such as board memberships and pro bono work.
