The world is changing, and so is the practice of business law. Driven by the desire for change, at BCF we have developed a different approach: we put people before business. We listen to our clients in order to understand their concerns, their motivations, their goals and their values. We have established a working environment that promotes creativity and excellence. Our team players are passionate professionals who are dynamic, efficient and daring people.
You matter to us
At BCF, you are not just a marginal player. From day one, you will be at the heart of the action and develop rapidly. You will be a key member of the team, taking full part in implementing the firm’s vision. We don’t hire people who are just along for the ride: if you join our team, you are looking to be a builder and to play a front-line role in BCF’s development. Are you ready to make a difference?
The preferred choice of entrepreneurs
To truly understand our competitive strength, you must appreciate how well-connected BCF is to Québec’s decision-makers. We are recognized for our invaluable contributions to business and have proven our value to all other players in the commercial world. We know the business environment intimately and have the necessary expertise to represent the interests of all parties.
Our clients include entrepreneurs, companies, financial institutions, institutional investors, university research agencies, public corporations and family enterprises. They choose BCF because we speak their language—the language of business people and decision makers.
In 1995, BCF was founded by nine visionary individuals determined to transform the way business law was practiced. Quebec companies and young legal talent immediately embraced BCF’s pioneering approach, which led to rapid growth for the firm. BCF then opened an office in Quebec City to meet the continuing demands of a growing clientele for its innovative services.
In providing services based on the core values of humility, creativity, generosity, intensity and sincerity, BCF has gained the trust of businesses in all sectors of activity throughout Quebec, across Canada and internationally.
With more than 200 professionals working in 22 multidisciplinary strategic teams, BCF is the reference for everything connected to business law. Add to this its privileged relationships with highly respected law firms in cities around the globe as well as its membership in Meritas, one of the largest networks of independent law firms in the world, and you have the picture: we’re a spirited team, renowned for our different approach.
BCF strives to play a leading role as a positive agent of change in Quebec and beyond. We will fulfil this role in two ways: through our dynamic involvement in the business community and through our philanthropy in the general community. Our professionals are leaders with influence that goes far beyond their jobs. Involved in politics, the community, sports, charities… BCF’s people are energetic, committed and generous.
