Our History

Keel Cottrelle LLP was formed in 1987 by a group of lawyers from larger firms who wanted to practise law together and serve their clients in a smaller, more focussed and congenial environment. Since then, we have been joined by others who share our values.


Keel Cottrelle LLP was awarded Corporate International Magazine's 2010 International Legal Award for practice excellence as "The Best Boutique Law Firm In Canada" and has twice been recognized in Canadian Lawyer Magazine's annual survey of Canada's leading law firm boutiques.
