WHY APPLY TO BROWNLEE LLP

Brownlee LLP is a Western Canadian law firm with offices in Calgary and Edmonton, providing the breadth and depth of service of a full-service law firm throughout Alberta, Saskatchewan, the Yukon, Nunavut and the Northwest Territories. With extensive and long-standing practices in almost all legal disciplines, our Civil Litigation, Municipal and Administrative Law, and Business Law groups remain the cornerstones and core strengths upon which we continue to build extensive specialized and unique practice areas.
