TORONTO, Sept. 13, 2018 /CNW/ - Canadian Business and Maclean's today released their definitive list of Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies. Each year Canada's leading business magazine teams up with Canada's leading current affairs magazine, Maclean's, to publish the GROWTH 500 ranking of Canada's 500 fastest-growing companies.
2018 is the second year in a row that Loopstra Nixon LLP has ranked among the country's fastest growing companies.
"It is never easy to earn a spot on this prestigious list, but this year's pool was the most competitive yet," says Deborah Aarts, the GROWTH 500 program manager. "This year's winners demonstrate the resilience, innovation and sheer management smarts it takes to build a thriving business today. Canada – and the world – needs more entrepreneurial success stories like these."
Founded in 1973 by Charles Loopstra and Sandy Nixon, Loopstra Nixon LLP has grown to become Ontario's premier mid-market business and public law firm. With 43 lawyers and over 100 employees, the firm serves as legal counsel to public and private companies, financial institutions, insurers, municipal governments and a number of not-for-profit organizations and charities.
"We are absolutely honoured to be included among so many other wonderful entrepreneurial companies" says the firm's Managing Partner, Allan Ritchie. "I would attribute our continued success to the strength of our team members and our incredible clients, who's own growth ambitions have forced us to keep pace with them as they continue to grow and prosper".
During the last five years, the firm has more than doubled the size of its legal team, adding top notch talent to bolster existing Business and Public law practice groups and launch complementary practice groups in the areas of Bankruptcy and Insolvency Law, Intellectual Property Law and Tax Litigation, to further expand the suite of services offered to its business clients. The firm has also opened satellite offices in Toronto's financial district, Vaughan, Buffalo, and New York City.
