Stikeman Elliott has advised companies in all areas of Canadian business law in the European, Middle Eastern, and African markets for over fifty years. In 1969 we were the first Canadian firm to open an office in London, and today lawyers from across all our offices continue to work extensively throughout the EMEA markets, using their broad knowledge of the region to provide effective and efficient legal advice to businesses working in and with Canada.

We are proudly independent, allowing us to work with law firms across the region, providing a seamless transaction experience for clients. Our lawyers have experience in all industry sectors, and work in conjunction with experts across our different practice groups to deliver comprehensive Canadian legal advice.
