Areas of Practice

Why we don’t put all our Eggs in One Basket

The lawyers at Bear Creek Law LLP pride themselves in keeping diverse practice areas. This allows the lawyers to use developments and principles well established in one area of the law to another.

In addition, exposure to many different practice areas helps us to spot legal problems that may arise in the future in a separate area of the law for our clients. We can then take immediate steps to protect our client’s interests.

Moreover, a diverse practice area allows the lawyers to get to know more judges, counsel, and registry staff. These connections often prove to be invaluable at various stages of a file.

The lawyers at Bear Creek Law LLP welcome you to have a consultation with them about any litigation related matter even if it is not specifically addressed below. If it involves going to Court, chances are we have dealt with it.
