North & Company LLP Law Offices was established in April 1973 when Phil North joined Jamie Paterson as an Associate under Paterson & Company. In 1975, Mr. North became a partner in the firm, and the name changed to Paterson North. In 1996, the firm was re-branded North & Company.
The firm started in Lethbridge with two lawyers and five staff, with the same mission today: to provide quality legal services in Lethbridge and Southern Alberta. To accommodate clients in smaller rural communities, the firm looked to open branch offices across Southern Alberta, with the first branch office opening in Warner and Milk River in 1976.
Today, North & Company has a staff of 24 lawyers supported by a large group of legal assistants based in Lethbridge and Southern Alberta. The firm continues to offer services to rural communities with branch offices that staff lawyers and support teams in Blairmore, Claresholm, Coaldale, Pincher Creek, Taber, and Vulcan. North & Company continues to have a presence in Picture Butte ( lawyer attending Wednesday mornings), Warner, Milk River, High River and Bow Island (by appointment). The communities of Southern Alberta continue to encompass what the firm stands for; honest, hard-working, committed business. North & Company is proud to have a presence in these communities and supports many local initiatives throughout Southern Alberta.
