Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP Company Profile

14:58 EDT 20th September 2018 | BioPortfolio

In the fall of 1862, five years before Confederation, Britton Bath Osler began to practise law in the village of Dundas, Upper Canada (now the Province of Ontario), about 40 miles west of Toronto. He was 23, entrepreneurial, and proved to be as good at business as he was at law.
Less than four years later, he opened a second office in the larger centre of Hamilton. The passing of another 10 years saw B.B. Osler start what became one of North America’s first commuter railways (between Hamilton and Dundas). Around the same time, he was appointed as the province’s Crown Attorney. In 1882, he moved to Toronto, the provincial capital, and formed a partnership with John Hoskin and several other lawyers. This enterprise grew rapidly, becoming one of the top three law firms in Canada within a decade. Frederick Harcourt’s name was added to the letterhead in 1902. Within another 10 years, the firm’s net annual income had grown to an impressive $89,000.
Almost from the start, the firm’s clients included many of the country’s largest concerns: the Canada North-West Land Company, Canadian Pacific Railway, banks and insurance companies, manufacturers and resource companies. It attracted the best and brightest: ambitious young barristers and solicitors as well as former Supreme Court judges and prime ministers. It earned a reputation as the law firm to go to for help with the most complex business law challenges, when success was essential to the organization’s future growth and prosperity.
Almost a century and a half later, in an era that's witnessed the most rapid change in history, that's one thing that hasn't changed.
