about us

putting client service above all else

MBC was formed in 2013 from a group of Ottawa lawyers that have worked together for many years. By joining MBC, the lawyers and staff of MBC commit to providing excellent and approachable legal services that put client service above all else.

Our team includes lawyers with a wide range of backgrounds, specializations, skills and experience. Our lawyers have appeared before various levels of the courts and tribunals. Many of us work in both English and French.

Teamwork is the foundation of our approach. We draw on our collective expertise and creativity to deliver effective representation, customized solutions and positive results. We are able to serve you in both official languages and are willing and able to take on cases in any jurisdiction in the Province of Ontario.

We pride ourselves on our collegiality and civility with other members of the Bar. If a matter arises that is outside of our areas of expertise, you can rest assured that we will be able to find resources outside our firm that will meet your needs. MBC should be at the top of your list of contacts.

MBC is also active in the community, supporting a variety of charitable and community associations.

Community Involvement

MBC proudly supports many of Ottawa’s charitable, legal, and professional organizations.

MBC proudly supports several charities with donations and fundraising.  Some charities that we have supported in the past and continue to support are the Ottawa Food Bank, CIBC Run fore the Cure, the Ottawa Humane Society, CN Cycle for CHEO, and the Navy Bike Ride.

In addition to supporting charitable and community organizations, MBC is also a proud member of the Ontario legal community.

We are active in the Ontario Bar Association, the County of Carleton Law Association and the Association of French Speaking Jurists of Ontario.

Some of our lawyers volunteer their time assisting self-represented litigants through the Law Help Ontario program, run through Pro Bono Law Ontario. Started in June 2010, this program offers free summary legal advice to self-represented litigants at the Ottawa Courthouse.

Our lawyers and law clerks stay well informed of the latest developments in the law by regularly attending legal education conferences and programs sponsored by the Law Society of Ontario, the Canadian Bar Association, the County of Carleton Law Association, the Ottawa Construction Association and other organizations.

Several of our lawyers have lectured at the Law Society of Upper Canada Bar Association Course, and present at legal education conferences at programs sponsored by various organizations. By participating in such programs, our lawyers stay abreast of recent developments in the law and advance their knowledge, as well as that of their peers.

Ian McBride was the President of the County of Carleton Law Association for the 2013-2014 year, and has been actively involved in the CCLA for many years.  Andrew Ferguson is currently the CCLA President.
