With nearly 700 lawyers now based in Calgary, Toronto, Montréal, Ottawa and Québec, John Coleman, the managing partner of NRC, said the firm is a “new Canadian powerhouse”.

“I believe this changes the legal landscape in Canada,” he said. “We will have unmatched strength and reach in the mining and energy business in Canada.”

NRC integration partner and managing partner of Macleod Dixon Bill Tuer said “there is a strong global focus on western Canada and, more than ever, investment is flowing into and out of the region”.
