Farris LLP: Vancouver's Law Firm


09 October 2012

Farris Named as a Top 10 Firm in Western Canada

Canadian Lawyer has announced their Top 10 Regional Firms for Western & Northern Canada for 2012.  Farris is pleased once again, to be listed in the Top 10.

Excerpt from the article:

Farris Vaughan Wills & Murphy LLP managing partner Alan Hamilton says the firm switched its focus from national to regional about five or six years ago. Although he doesn’t rule out going national in the future, he says none of the opportunities that have presented themselves so far have been attractive enough. Instead, the firm looked inside British Columbia for growth by merger. “We thought we should get out of Vancouver if we could, and we found the ideal firm to merge with in Kelowna,” Hamilton says of its 2008 absorption of Kelowna-based Petraroia Langford LLP. Farris has also picked up partners in Victoria as it seeks to expand its presence in the province’s capital city. “A significant number of people, including the business community in Kelowna, like to use lawyers that live, work and pay taxes in the province, so it makes sense for us to embrace this concept of regionalism,” says Hamilton.
