Norton Rose announces Calgary leaders after Macleod Dixon merger

Norton Rose Canada recently announced new leadership appointments in its Calgary office after its recent merger with Macleod Dixon.

Here is a rundown of who has been appointed to what position:

Bob Engbloom is now deputy chair of Norton Rose Canada; Jack MacGillivray is managing partner of the Calgary office; Jennifer Kennedy is Alberta business law practice group leader and Randal Van de Mosselaer is Alberta litigation practice group leader. Bill Tuer, former Macleod Dixon managing partner, is now chief integration partner with Norton Rose Canada and member of Norton Rose Group’s global executive committee.

Lexpert ran a feature on the Calgary market last fall, just after the merger was announced. Here is a quick quote from the article:

Bill Tuer doesn’t look like a reluctant bride. He looks, well, like what a seasoned, well-respected Calgary corporate lawyer who’s managed one of the city’s most successful, independent law firms for the past decade should look like: a leader who knows in what direction he’s steering the ship and why.

The Canadian legal market will be watching closely to see whether the global nature of Norton Rose, coupled with its newly acquired ties to Calgary, will give it an edge over the other national and regional firms in Canada.

Lexpert will keep a close eye as well.
