Whether your needs relate to business law, high-stakes litigation or intellectual property matters, we provide a full range of legal services to meet your unique needs and rise to any challenge that comes your way.
In July 2015, we announced that Gowlings will be joining forces with Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co (WLG), a leading U.K. law firm, to create a new international legal practice called Gowling WLG.
Launching in 2016, Gowling WLG will be home to more than 1,400 legal professionals in 18 cities across Canada, the U.K., Europe, Asia and the Middle East — making it a Global 100 legal practice from day one. It will also be the first international legal combination to be co-led by a Canadian firm. Learn more here.
