Stronger Together

Advice that goes beyond claims, compliance, and risk to create commercial and social opportunities that benefit communities for generations to come.

At Ratcliff, we work together to provide a range of legal solutions for organizations, governments, families, and individuals. Our historical knowledge combined with up-to-date expertise across a variety of practice areas means we meet our clients’ needs with tenacity, creativity, and care.

We are proud to be recognized as leaders in Indigenous and Aboriginal law as we continue to build on our firm’s 70-year history of advocacy and support for the self-determined goals of First Nations in British Columbia, Yukon, and beyond. Our exceptional track record with Aboriginal rights and title, Treaty consultation, negotiation and accommodation, governance, and economic development place us at the forefront of the journey to reconciliation.

With equal depth of expertise, our lawyers work collaboratively to assist Indigenous and non-Indigenous clients with business, labour, wills and estates, and real estate matters. By accessing specialized skill sets across our departments, we provide not only issue-specific advice, but big-picture insights that maximize positive outcomes for our clients.
