MONTREAL and TORONTO, Nov. 1, 2018 /CNW/ - DS Lawyers Canada and Regent Law, two respected law firms, are pleased to announce their landmark agreement, merging their firms to create a national Canadian business law boutique.

This will transform the Canadian legal industry by providing a distinct alternative for businesses in both domestic and international markets, while providing sophisticated clientele with immediate accessibility to the complete scope of business and legal expertise required to realize business plans and corporate financial priorities.  

"This is a significant strategic accomplishment for both firms and represents another milestone in our growth," says J.F. Welch, CEO of DS Lawyers. "Our shared philosophies and values, coupled with our combined expertise, will benefit our clients and allow us to further fulfill our mutual objectives of continuing to meet their needs and exceed their expectations."

DS Lawyers benefits from Regent Law's team of equally skilled professionals, all of whom are tactically minded with widespread expertise in business law, banking, corporate governance, commercial litigation, insolvency and restructuring, mergers and acquisitions, capital markets and securities, tax, and customs and trade law.

"We are extremely proud to be creating a national boutique law firm dedicated to Canada's business community," says Justin R. Fogarty, chairman of Regent Law. "This continues our strategic growth that began with our successful alignment with Burstall LLP in Calgary, which remains intact going forward and which was the catalyst that led us to the DS leadership group. Our cohesive vision recognizes what entrepreneurs demand: a pathway to 'Yes,' anchored by innovative and solutions-based thinking."
