Welcome to Bottom Line Research & Communications for High Quality     Reliable      legal research and writing.

Research lawyer Barb Cotton is the principal of Bottom Line Research & Communications. She and her team of well-qualified, experienced research lawyers work together to offer solo, small firm and specialized practitioners help with their legal research and writing needs, as well as larger law firms, corporations and government and other agencies.

They prepare research memoranda, briefs, appellate documentation, including factums, applications, and leave to appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada applications and responses, policy papers and quantum assessments. And if a quick search and a reporting email with cases is all that's needed - they can do that, too.

Bottom Line will also ghostwrite a paper, blog post or web content for you.

And here's a real plus. Their research is done in a timely manner, and within a budget you decide on.

  • Are you a busy lawyer who simply does not have the time to do the quality research or writing that is necessary to run your practice?

  • Do you need reliable legal research before you can comfortably give your client the written opinion he, she or it is asking for?

  • Are you off to court and want to be well armed with the leading and most up-to-date authorities?

  • Are you appearing in Special Chambers, in ADR or before the Court of Appeal and simply do not have time to prepare that written brief or factum and other appellate documentation?

  • Would you like to apply for leave to appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada or need a response?

  • Have you been invited to present at a conference but do not have time to write the paper?

  • Do you need help keeping your blog or website current and interesting?

The bottom line is...Bottom Line Research can do it for you!
