February 2, 2007

UK law firm Stringer Saul has now formally joined the Fasken Martineau family. The deal was completed in London on February 1 when managing partner David Corbett and partners of Stringer Saul signed the final papers to confirm the coming together of the two firms. The deal also means that the existing Fasken Martineau office, previously based in the City of London, moves to the one base in London's Hanover Square in the centre of the West End. The London office will be known as Fasken Martineau Stringer Saul LLP., and it creates the first ever full-service Canadian-UK law partnership.

Norman Ziman, formerly managing partner of Stringer Saul, who becomes managing partner of the new combined London office, said, "A lot has passed through our doors over nearly 30 years of Stringer Saul and this will continue in greater volume with our new identity. We are all delighted the deal has now been completed and we look forward to joining forces with our new Canadian colleagues in a range of new joint initiatives to take the business further, here and around the world."

Fasken will now be in the top 70 (based on fee earners worldwide) of global law firms in London and creates a global family of nearly 650 lawyers working in eight offices in London, Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary, Montreal, Quebec City, New York and Johannesburg.
