About Us

Who We Are:

Hara & Company is a family run law firm with deep roots in the Vancouver community. The firm was established by Thomas Hara, QC, in 1962, being the first Japanese-Canadian to open a sole law practice in British Columbia.

Starting as a thriving labour and criminal law practice, Thomas was counsel to six International Labour Unions while also running criminal trials and acting for approximately 100 companies.

Following the addition of Thomas' brother Glenn Hara to the firm in 1977, the firm broadened its areas of focus to include solicitor's work. Glenn maintains close relationships with business owners in the East Vancouver community and is sought out for his practical approach to problem solving.

Bradley Hara joined his uncle and father at Hara & Company in 1992, after articling at Watson Goepel in the area of insurance defence. Bradley's focus at the firm is mostly civil litigation although he has also developed a large practice involving real estate, acquisitions and corporate law.

Relying on a low-key marketing approach, for over 50 years the firm's practice consisted entirely of referrals from satisfied clients.

Although Thomas is now retired, the firm welcomed Scott McInnes in 2019.
