CALGARY, June 22, 2016 /CNW/ - Cassels Brock is pleased to announce the opening of its new office in Calgary, Alberta. This move will expand the firm's existing national platform and enhance the depth of its expertise in several key sectors and practices.
"We are excited to build on our broad capabilities as a national firm while focusing growth in our areas of traditional strength," says Mark Young, Managing Partner at Cassels Brock. "As a firm with a long history of working with some of the most successful North American and international mining companies, opening an office in Calgary provides us with an opportunity to offer additional services to existing clients and add expertise in the oil and gas sector to fully service the natural resources industry as a whole."
The firm also sees this as an opportunity to build on its reputation in the financial services sector, particularly in its restructuring practice, to better serve Alberta clients and execute on national mandates.
The office opens with three new partners of the firm, all well-established professionals within the Calgary legal market and business community: Keith Templeton, Jeffrey Oliver, and Sherri Fountain. The three partners are joined by two associates: Danielle Maréchal and Jacqueline Chow. Keith, Sherri, and Jacqueline join the firm's Business Law Group, while Jeffrey and Danielle are members of the Financial Services Group with a specialty in restructuring.
"The desire of these practitioners to continue their careers with Cassels Brock is a game-changer for us. The combined strength of their profiles will solidify our reputation in Calgary. We anticipate this office will grow alongside the needs of our clients in Alberta," says Mark. "Following our successful expansion into Vancouver four years ago, we believe that we can provide a fresh perspective and renewed commitment to the Calgary business community during a time when many firms are scaling back their presence.
The new Calgary office is located in Millennium Tower at 440 - 2nd Avenue SW. Cassels Brock also has offices in Toronto and Vancouver.
