Our History - 1990-today
Expansion into Asia and continued strategic growth in Canada

1990 - Today

History Line

To establish a broader geographic presence to offer enhanced regional, national and international services to clients, the firm undertook a rapid expansion. Davis & Company, as it was known at that time, opened offices in Whitehorse, Yellowknife, and Toronto. The acquisition of Montreal’s Hara-Rothschild with its own robust client catalogue of Japanese banks, corporations and government organizations that conducted business in North America, naturally coincided with Davis’ Japan focus. A merger with Lucas Bowker & White, an Edmonton firm founded in 1948, and the opening of a greenfield office in Calgary rounded out the western region. Creating Davis & Takahashi in Tokyo underscored the firm’s commitment to Japan and its people. We remain the only Canadian-based law firm with an established presence in Japan.

The firm changed its name to Davis LLP in 2007 in keeping with the founder's name and to identify Davis as a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP).

Today, Davis takes pride in its ongoing commitment to providing clients with the best possible legal services available that reflect their needs. This commitment is exemplified by our focus on strategic expansion which continues to attract top market leaders to the firm.
