Vancouver City ReportLaw firms are being hit with a flood of legal work as Asian investment continues to grow
Calgary: Resilience of oil town lawyers put to test“It’s hold on to your hat,” says Joe Lougheed. “Don’t get bucked off and look to the future.” That is his straight-from-the-hip assessment about business, and specifically the law business, in Calgary these days.
Lougheed is a partner with Dentons LLP and a member of one of the oldest and most storied families in Alberta.

The monument marks the spot — according to the city’s history — of a meeting in August 1882 between the Dakota Sioux Chief Whitecap and Saskatoon’s founding father John Lake.
St John's: Big-city practice, small town lifestyleLawyers who have not visited St. John’s, NL, in some time will find the view from historic Signal Hill reassuringly familiar.
