Law Practice For Sale

OTTAWA VALLEY SOLICITOR’S PRACTICE – Chown & Smith of Renfrew, Ontario was founded in 1894 by S. T. Chown, who was joined in the practice by his son, Murray Chown in 1926, who was later joined in the practice by his son, Bill Chown in 1961, with Brian Smith joining the practice in 1976.  With the retirement of Bill Chown, Brian Smith is now the sole practitioner in the firm.

The practice is primarily Estate and Real Estate (residential, recreational and rural based) with an experienced three person staff.  There is a large bank of Wills with long standing clientele (including five generations of some families).

This is a turn-key practice with Brian Smith available for a flexible transition period.

This practice is suitable for a sole practitioner or for a firm wishing to expand its client base in the Ottawa Valley.

Will Check – Wills Registry for Ontario

We’re pleased to announce that, a Wills Registry for Ontario, is now open for use by lawyers across the province! Will Check is an initiative by the County of Carleton Law Association, funded in part by the Federation of Law Associations (FOLA), to keep track of will location information to assist in future retrieval. You can register a will individually or send them a batch file of information on several clients. They do not store the will itself, just information on where it can be located, and they provide a release form your clients can sign to approve having their will registered on the site. There is no fee for this service. Check it out at!
