It just starts with a conversation

The real challenge for a lawyer is how well they can serve as their client’s champion. 

A champion takes a broader, humane view. They elevate their client above their own self-interest. It’s the difference between providing a checklist of services and applying some strategic imagination to craft solutions. 

At Nelligan O’Brien Payne LLP, our team has the experience and perspective to guide you safely to the resolution of your legal issue. We take the burden of worry off your shoulders and provide options you may not have considered for your personal affairs, your business and your professional life. 

We pride ourselves on defying the stereotype of the stuffy suit. Our lawyers and staff take their work seriously, but not themselves. 

Only driven individuals who care about their community and their profession make the cut for our team. We value ethics and humility over arrogance or a sense of entitlement. 

We won’t just ask you to trust us. Trust is something that we will earn

You won’t find sharks here. It’s just not our style. But we aren’t afraid to take them on. 

In fact, we thrive on tackling challenging cases and squaring off with formidable opponents. 

We won’t just ask you to trust us. Trust is something that we will earn. We’ll start by having a frank conversation about your needs, your expectations and how we can help.
