Firm Background

Ritch Durnford is located in downtown Halifax in the Province of Nova Scotia, Canada, where we have provided quality legal service since 1948.

Loyalty and client satisfaction have remained top priorities since the firm's inception. Ritch Durnford offers client-centred legal services in a wide range of practice areas, but our ongoing success in providing cost-effective solutions for insurers led to the Lexpert Directory recognizing us as the leading litigation and specialty boutique firm in Nova Scotia.

In addition, in June 2008, Ritch Durnford expanded the firm to include an extensive practice in the areas of labour and employment law. This expansion has created greater depth in the services we are able to offer to our clients and is part of our on-going commitment to providing outstanding service to our clients.

We succeed when our clients succeed. That's why Ritch Durnford takes such pride in being an approachable and accessible law firm. Our employees are experienced, versatile, practical and attentive to clients' needs. The firm's rapport with its clients makes Ritch Durnford the preferred law firm in Nova Scotia for local, regional, national and international people and businesses.
