For five years now, BLG’s Team North® has been dedicated to providing relevant legal services to Canada’s North. Why is relevancy so important? Because doing business in the North is nothing like doing business in the South, and we believe that to be effective, legal services need to be provided with an understanding of the environment in which they are to be acted upon. We are in the North frequently to attend hearings, client meetings, conferences, and to go on site visits, among other things. Moreover, our entire team is kept up to date by regular updates on news items and briefs on legal matters related to business in the North. We have regular Team North meetings to share information and discuss the issues that affect our clients in the North. We are committed to producing two client newsletters per year (this is our second of 2013), as well as internal newsletters to ensure that our clients and members of our firm are kept current on the legal implications of issues and events, in an effort to understand the challenges and opportunities of Canada’s North.
