RMRF is a progressive Edmonton-based law firm that has met the challenging legal needs of businesses, public bodies and individual clients since 1915.
RMRF believes that in addition to providing legal services of the highest quality, we must also be contributors to the advancement of the law profession, the enhancement of society, and the education of the next generation of legal professionals. We uphold these beliefs in all that we do.
Our commitment to the enhancement of society can be seen in the variety of ways we volunteer our time, energy and skills to support the communities to which we belong.
Community service is an integral part of the ethos of RMRF. We live this ethos by participating in fundraisers for various causes, serving on boards for not-for-profit groups and professional associations, and undertaking pro bono work on deserving cases.
We have a strong reputation in the legal community for teaching to the profession. Several of our members have taught or teach law subjects at various post-secondary institutions, and we have always paid great attention to the quality of the training we provide to articling students.
Our lawyers also speak regularly to professional and business audiences at conferences and other events to help them gain a better understanding of legal topics concerning them.
An ongoing list of our activities in support of our community can be found on our News & Events page.
