Burnet, Duckworth & Palmer’s (BD&P) history stretches back over a century, from small town Alberta to our presence in Calgary today as one of the largest leading law firms in Western Canada. The firm’s business is local, regional, national and international — yet its location is singular. Calgary.

BD&P is noted for attracting top-level transactional and litigation work from a broad spectrum of clients. BD&P lawyers are recognized as some of the best in their fields.BD&P’s banking, commercial litigation, commercial real estate, commercial transactions, energy, insurance, securities and taxation practices were built on its reputation and they remain key areas of focus. To its newer practice areas, such as aviation, competition, intellectual property and technology, and international commercial arbitration they bring innovation and leading-edge talent combined with the credibility and integrity built over the firm’s long history. At BD&P, it’s not hard to quantify the depth of experience and expertise represented by a team of more than 140 lawyers and over 170 managerial, paralegal and support staff.

BD&P believes that a law firm's responsibility to the community extends far beyond the provision of legal services.

At BD&P, they understand that diversity and inclusion results in better decision making, more innovative problem solving, and enhanced creativity.
