Gowling WLG is a new international law firm created by the combination of Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co (WLG), a leading UK-based international law firm, and Gowlings, a leading Canadian law firm.

With more than 1,400 legal professionals in 18 cities across the UK, Canada, Continental Europe, the Middle East and Asia, Gowling WLG provides clients with legal advice at home and abroad in a range of areas – from complex cross-border transactions and intellectual property matters to high-stakes litigation and disputes.

The new firm also features a strong focus on key global sectors to provide clients with in-depth experience and expertise specific to their industries, including advanced manufacturing, energy, financial services, infrastructure, life sciences, natural resources, real estate and tech.

Our lawyers combine these first-class legal skills with creativity and ingenuity to help clients succeed. They understand the commercial issues, challenges and opportunities clients face and are able to provide tailored, practical advice. The firm's Brexit unit highlights this approach in action – delivering a range of content and resources to help organisations untangle the key issues and plan for the future. Visit our 'Brexit Untangled' hub for more details.

The founding firms bring a legacy of collaborative, people-oriented cultures to Gowling WLG, having both been repeatedly recognised as top employers in their markets. WLG has appeared on the UK's Best Workplaces list, produced by the Great Place to Work Institute, every year since the list began in 2001. Gowlings has been named one of the 50 Best Employers in Canada by Aon Hewitt for six straight years.

We see the world through our clients’ eyes, and collaborate across countries, offices, service areas and sectors to help them succeed, no matter how challenging the circumstances.
