Celebrated for its multicultural diversity, Canada is a preferred destination for migrants, tourists, students and businesses – particularly from Asia, where economic growth remains high.

With its team of multilingual lawyers helping Canadian clients abroad and foreign companies doing business in Canada, Vancouver-based Alexander Holburn Beaudin + Lang – a multipractice law firm known for its historic base in insurance law, business law, litigation and dispute resolution – embraces Canada’s glocal attitude. The firm has a highly regarded team in its wealth preservation and estate planning practice – a promising sector spurred by the influx of foreign investment into Canada led by Asia’s high-net-worth individuals and retirees.

“To us, client service means being fully engaged with our clients whenever and wherever we’re needed,” says Bruno De Vita, managing partner. “We have a relatively low-cost structure that allows us to provide our services at reasonable rates, giving real value to our clients.”

With a history dating back to the 1940s, the firm has also maintained a robust transactional practice focused on commercial lending, real estate, mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance and securities.

Keenly aware of the needs of their business clients, Alexander Holburn devised Smart Series – a suite of innovatively tailored and affordable legal packages for emerging new companies.
