LAW THAT WORKS

Osler is a leading Canadian law firm with a singular focus—your business. From Toronto, Montréal, Calgary, Ottawa, Vancouver and New York, we advise our Canadian, US and international clients on an array of domestic and cross-border legal issues. Our collaborative “one firm” approach draws on the expertise of over 400 lawyers to provide responsive, proactive and practical legal solutions driven by your business needs. For over 150 years, we’ve built a reputation for solving problems, removing obstacles, and providing the answers you need, when you need them.

Osler is recognized for its extensive expertise in business law and is consistently ranked as one of Canada’s top firms. In every matter we handle, we go the extra mile to achieve the best possible outcome for you. We invest in building long-term relationships by focusing on understanding your business, your challenges, and your changing goals and strategies. We work hard to stay at the forefront of emerging legal issues and developments that impact your business, and we work even harder to keep you informed.

Law should not require guesswork. When it comes to your legal matters, you want to know two things: how your law firm can help solve your problem, and how much it’s going to cost. You need the work done efficiently, transparently, and you want certainty about the fees.

Osler Works is our way of delivering practical, cost-effective legal services, using cutting-edge technology and predictable processes that serve your business—and your bottom line. By embracing transparent planning, ongoing communication and non-traditional approaches to law, Osler Works helps you reduce the time, effort and costs of your legal matters. It is an approach that focuses and delivers on what’s important to you.

As business evolves, Osler is evolving to meet your changing needs. Our firm is constantly improving how we serve you so that we can build deeper, stronger relationships and work more effectively for your business. It’s law that works.
