The firm’s origins date back to a practice which began in Richmond in the late 1950’s. The firm name originates from partners Bill Campbell, Ray Froh, Ralph May and Eric Rice who joined the firm in the early 1970’s.
The firm has remained relatively constant in size over the years, with 13 lawyers and approximately 20 support staff. Our size allows us to provide a broad base of skills and sophisticated level of practice to our clients, yet we have not grown so large as to lose the individual touch and sense of teamwork which we consider essential.
Our members are actively involved in the legal profession and the community. Former partner, Eric Rice, Q.C. is a Past-President of the Canadian Bar Association, Past-President of the B.C. Branch of the Canadian Bar Association and a former Judge of the Supreme Court of British Columbia. Edward Montague is a Past-President and current Governor of the B.C. Trial Lawyers Association, and a current member of the Ethics Committee of the Law Society of British Columbia. Spencer May is a current member of the Canadian Bar Association (B.C. Branch) Provincial Council as an elected representative for Vancouver County. Ralph May is a director of the Richmond Hospital Foundation and founding Chair of the Richmond Community Foundation, Edward Montague is a director of the Richmond Food Bank and Eric Schroter is a director of the Richmond Christmas Fund.
Campbell Froh May & Rice has developed a notable reputation for its corporate, commercial, real estate and financing expertise. Our firm is also much in demand for litigation services, including complex commercial, estate and personal injury litigation. At any given time, the firm is conducting numerous cases at all levels of the courts and other tribunals within the Province of B.C.
