Bernard & Partners, a general partnership of law corporations, is pleased to announce that effective May 1, 2013 the firm will transition from a general partnership to a limited liability partnership with the new name Bernard LLP. The transition from a general partnership to a limited liability partnership is done in accordance with the Partnership Act of British Columbia. This transition modernizes the structure of our partnership and is consistent with the evolution of professional legal partnerships in British Columbia and elsewhere in Canada. We believe our new name and structure, while drawing on our strong legal heritage, reflects a more contemporary approach to the practice of law.
