Quality Services For Business Transactions

From the firm's inception, Garton & Harris has maintained a comprehensive business law practice. Our lawyers focus on the everyday needs of companies in Port Coquitlam and the Tri-Cities area, including business transactions, contracts and resolution of disputes.

Over the past three decades, we have received regular referrals from local accountants and other financial professionals. As a result, we have developed a significant history of service in the area, and our company clients rely on us to provide timely and high-quality work.

Our Corporate-Commercial Services

Garton & Harris is currently the registered records office for approximately 450 companies and provides services to companies in a number of different British Columbia industries.

Business clients require legal services as a result of many specific events, such as the hiring of employees, leasing new space, opening a franchise, entering into a supply contract, or changing legal structure. We strive to make the transition seamless and with minimal disruption to our clients' business operations.

Therefore, in addition to representation in business disputes, our firm offers clients a range of legal services including:

  • Corporate record-keeping
  • Federal and provincial business incorporation
  • Reorganization, amalgamation and windup
  • Financing
  • Acquisitions
  • Employment contracts
  • Drafting leases
  • Shareholder and partnership agreements
  • Buying and selling of businesses
  • Establishing sole proprietorships, partnerships and joint ventures

Often, business owners do not anticipate the specific legal service they will need at a given time. For this reason, we remain accessible to answer questions on an ongoing basis. Our firm values the sustained, long-term relationships we have built over time and continue to build with new clients.
