The year 2016 marks the mid-way point of BLG's five year Strategic Plan, which was designed to ensure the continued success of our firm. Our vision is to lead our profession as a high-performing firm, and to be recognized for our unwavering commitment to exceptional client service, professional excellence and talent development.

We have made 2016 the "year of service." Aside from our passion for and interest in the law, none of us would be in this business if we were not dedicated to serving the needs of our clients. It is at the heart of everything we do.

I am pleased to say our efforts are already delivering results. Recently, seven of our lawyers across the firm were named the winners of a 2016 Client Choice Award, established by Lexology and International Law Office. These lawyers were selected by their clients for providing excellent client care and quality service.

I wish you all an excellent first half of 2016 and I look forward to providing you with more information on our exciting client service initiatives in the second half of 2016. As always, please continue to send us your feedback and suggestions at Alumni@blg.com,or through our LinkedIn alumni group.

Sincerely,

Sean Weir
National Managing Partner and CEO
