Firm Details

We Do Things Differently

We love what we do. We believe that simplicity beats complexity, every time. Our lawyers back up our natural confidence with undeniable expertise: we know our practice areas inside and out, and we can prove it. It’s why our lawyers are frequently called upon to speak.

Clients Come First

Boughton Law takes a proactive, knowledge driven approach to solving your legal challenges. That means that we specialize in finding creative, outside-of-the-box solutions that utilize our team’s experience, our strategic partnerships (such as our affiliation with Meritas®), and our passion for work. Ultimately, our focus is you. Client relationships are a top priority, and we’ll always treat you with respect and dignity while delivering sound legal advice you can trust.

West Coast from the Start

Boughton Law has been based in Vancouver ever since James Edgar Boughton, Q.C., and Leslie R. Peterson, Q.C. graduated from UBC law school in 1949. After starting individual practices in the heart of downtown, Jim and Les joined forces to build Boughton into the full-service law firm that it is today.
