General Business Advice

Running a successful business is a challenging feat, and without the right legal team it can seem next to impossible to achieve growth. Hamilton Duncan served business owners and entrepreneurs in Surrey, Metro Vancouver, and the Fraser Valley since 1959. We combine an expertise in all aspects of business law, with a practical understanding of business operations and the many challenges facing business owners today. We work closely with clients at every stage of their business to chart a clear path to financial vitality, growth, and profitability. We encourage our clients to call when a business opportunity or challenge arises.

We can help you establish and grow your business. With strong ties to the business community in Surrey and the Fraser Valley, we can connect you with business leaders and key people at banks and accounting firms, and in local government who may be of assistance to you and your growing business.
