Effective May 4, Davis & Company LLP will be known as Davis LLP. The national law firm’s new name, and bold new look and website are being launched across Canada this morning in a series of advertisements in the Globe and Mail, the National Post, La Presse and other media.
“Our clients already call us ‘Davis’, and we are proudly honouring our firm’s founder, E.P. Davis, who established the firm in 1892,” stated National Managing Partner Doug Buchanan. “In addition, our simplified name emphasizes the fact that we are a ‘Limited Liability Partnership’ (LLP), not a corporate entity.”
Founded in Vancouver, Davis has expanded over the past decade to include seven offices in Canada and an office in Japan. The firm provides leading edge services in all traditional areas of legal practice including corporate/commercial, capital markets, taxation, banking and finance, litigation, labour and employment, and intellectual property and information technology.
Davis is one of Canada’s top ranked ‘project’ law firms specializing in project development, project financing, public-private partnerships, natural resource projects, and power generation projects.
