Dentons loses 13 lawyers from Canada mining group
Dentons Canada, Chris Pinnington, says that he doesn’t expect any further departures after the defection of 13 lawyers from the firm’s mining group.
“Notwithstanding the departure of our colleagues in Toronto, we continue to have a very robust mining practice across our offices in Canada and marrying it with the depth of expertise in other regions we do continue to offer our clients a compelling proposition and afford potential recruits an interesting opportunity in building the new Dentons”, said Pinnington.
The departure of the group occurred just as Dentons came into being with the merger of international law firm Salans LLP, Canadian law firm Fraser Milner Casgrain LLP, and international law firm SNR Denton. The combined firm has a headcount of 2,500 lawyers and professionals in 79 locations in 52 countries.
