Success. Learn it here.

Since 1971, we have provided innovative legal solutions to Canadian and international clients on a broad range of issues. Our commitment to legal excellence and client success has helped Perley-Robertson, Hill & McDougall become the largest independent full-service law firm in Canada’s National Capital Region. For students that represents opportunity.

We provide students with a superior articling or student work experience, including exposure to a broad range of practice areas and access to resources and support that are second to none. More, our students see firsthand what makes a firm, and our individual lawyers, succeed. With over 50 lawyers and 60 administrative professionals, we are continually evolving to meet the changing needs of our clients. Regardless of our client’s legal issue our approach is constant: delivering a solution that is both sound and efficient.

We provide our clients with clarity, focus, direction and efficiency. If our students learn how to do the same, they will succeed as well.

The success of the community in which we live and do business is our success. Our firm gives back to the community that has helped us become a leader. We have a long and proud history of supporting various Ottawa institutions and charities. Our efforts have helped organizations such as Terry Fox Foundation, Youville Centre, Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa, Citizen Advocacy, Ronald McDonald House, and Royal Ottawa Health Care.

We take our Ottawa articling program very seriously. We are proud of the talented students we’ve attracted, and especially that so many of them have gone on to launch their careers with us.
