Services provided by BHLF Lawyers

We accept a wide range of mandates : opinion, advice, negociation, mediation, litigation, drafting, training.

Terms and conditions of access

  1. You must be an agricultural producer
  2. The legal issue must not be between two producers or between a producer and the UPA or a group of producers

Like any private practice firm, BHLF Lawyers reserves the right to accept or refuse a mandate due to the unavailability of lawyers or other criteria. Services are billable at a competitive rate and are offered throughout the province of Quebec. Please note that we do not provide matrimonial or estate law services.
