This year, The Lawyer’s annual ranking of the largest UK law firms by turnover is available as an interactive, digital benchmarking tool. For the first time this will allow you to manipulate each data set against the metrics of your choice.
Five of Canada's leading law firms have merged to create a 590-lawyer firm - making it the second largest practice in the country.
The new firm will be called Borden Ladner Gervais and brings together Howard Mackie in Calgary, McMaster Gervais in Montreal, Scott & Aylen in Ottawa, Borden & Elliot in Toronto and Ladner Downs in Vancouver.
Borden Ladner will be second in size only to McCarthy Tetrault, a Toronto-based firm with six other offices in the country.
Managing partner of the new firm Sean Weir says: "The creation of the firm responds to our clients needs for a consistently high level of expertise and service across Canada."
The firm will have particular strength in corporate and M&A work as well as IP and environmental law.
Instead of a head office, the five practices will set up a national council with representatives from all of the firms.
