Just Right: Sometimes two words say it all. We chose these two because they represent who we are. Burchells LLP is a group of common sense lawyers whose clients appreciate our approachable style, practical advice and broad range of expertise.

We punch above our weight.  Over the past 100 years we’ve seen our share of major clients who trust us for the same reason our smaller ones do — the ability to understand their needs and find solutions that are Just Right.

Burchells provides clear business advice on ventures of all sizes, complex and simple, big and small. We also provide a full range of litigation advice and services, explaining options and making recommendations aimed at the issues relevant to you and your dispute. We value listening to our clients, learning their circumstances and understanding their unique needs.

Choosing Burchells is about choosing the right law firm for the right reasons. Burchells has a long history of working with a diverse clientele. Among other things we were the first law firm in our region to embrace Aboriginal law, and remain Atlantic Canada’s top firm in this field. We offer French/English bilingual services in every area of our practice.
We would be happy to discuss your legal needs. Feel free to contact any of our lawyers directly, or call our reception desk for more information.
