A mighty wind

It’s barely past the middle of January as I sit to write this editorial and already the waves of change, some might even call them disruption, are crashing on the shores of the Canadian legal business. There’s two more notches in the lipstick case of the globalization of legal practice with the arrival here of Axiom, which has purchased the general counsel business of Canadian legal services pioneer Cognition LLP, and international labour and employment firm Ogletree Deakins Nash Smoak & Stewart PC, which gets its first beachhead in Toronto.

A long, hard road

Nobody is perfect. People make mistakes. It could be a momentary lapse of judgment. It could be leading with your heart instead of your brain. It could be trusting someone who perhaps you shouldn’t have. It could be that you were tired. Or it could simply be that something had to be done, and this is what got done. These types of mistakes are and should be forgivable — because no one is perfect.

On Oct. 14, Thomson Reuters launched an exciting innovation project in Ontario’s tech centre in the Waterloo Region.
Thomson Reuters Lab will live at the Communitech centre, which houses nearly 1,000 technology and innovation companies in the region. The lab means Thomson Reuters can engage with the exciting and expanding innovation network and its dynamic startup company community, the University of Waterloo, and a culture of collaboration within the technology and innovation industries.
