It’s been a privilege to grow with Edmonton as we trace our firm’s service back to 1920. Today, our team of lawyers, paralegals and administrative staff bring local, national and international experience within many areas of practice to our clients across western and northern Canada. We’re passionate about what we do and proud to work under Mr. Ogilvie’s name.
Our firm’s continued tradition of leadership in both our profession and our community is a reflection of the various judicial appointments and municipal positions held by Mr. Ogilvie and his partners throughout the years. Among many other honours, Mr. Griesbach, K.C., served as the Mayor of Edmonton in 1907, the Honourable George O’Connor served as Chief Justice of Alberta from 1950 - 1957, and Mr. Ogilvie himself served as City Alderman for 16 years.
Our firm’s founder, James Harwood Ogilvie, Q.C., began studying law at the University of Alberta in 1914. One of thousands of Edmontonians enlisted to serve their country in World War I, Mr. Ogilvie returned home safely to complete his articles and was admitted to the Alberta Bar in 1920—the beginning of Ogilvie LLP.
