At Farris, we aim to provide services of the highest calibre in every area of the law. Our Partners, Associates, Management, Staff, and Students share a strong sense of loyalty and a collective responsibility – to our clients and to each other – to perform at nothing less than the highest standards.
For over a century, Farris has been practising law in BC and beyond at all levels with great success. Farris is a high performance law firm, with a diverse client base ranging from individuals to some of the largest public institutions and private corporations in British Columbia. We balance a strong regional and national presence with an expanding international practice that includes U.S., European, and Asia-Pacific based clients.
Our lawyers, students, and staff share a common goal – excellence in all that we do. We expect nothing less than each other's best efforts at all times, and vigorously foster an environment that encourages the individual and supports the team. The unique qualities that each individual brings to the collective effort are fundamental to the continued success of our firm and its clients, and we proudly acknowledge their contributions to our past... and to our future.
The success of our firm has only one measure: the success of the clients we serve. At Farris, we have long been guided by a tradition of doing the best that we can for our clients by doing good work. This tradition continues to serve as our foundation – and our inspiration.
Today, doing good work for our clients means advancing our position as knowledgeable, multi-disciplinary service providers with global competence. Our lawyers continue to demonstrate their qualities as innovative strategists, well able to manage the complexities of emerging industries, advancing technology, and variable, international economies to maximum advantage.
Our capacity to manoeuvre quickly at the global level reflects an equally efficient internal structure. Our firm is not managed by committees, which enables us to better focus on our clients and our work. That means minimal committee meetings; no billable hour budgets; no firm retreats; no written partnership agreement, and few Partner meetings.
And, our unique Partner admission policy – encouraging our Associates to approach us when they believe they are ready for partnership – further reveals an environment that is unencumbered by formalities, cultivates service excellence, and rewards innovative thinking.
Farris' CSR program supports local community events and charities that have a connection to our firm, employees, and clients. In addition to financial contributions, Farris lawyers and employees often participate in charitable events providing both leadership and support. Our firm is among the leading law firm community contributors in BC.
