I got this in my inbox this morning:
We have exciting news to share with you about our firm. Today we announced that we are merging with the Johannesburg-based law firm Bell Dewar <http://www.belldewar.co.za/> .
The merger will create one of the largest law firms operating in Africa, giving Fasken Martineau the largest international footprint of any Canadian-based law firm.
The addition of the Bell Dewar team of lawyers along with our existing teams in Johannesburg, London, Paris and across Canada provides us with an unrivalled base of talent and experience to bring to the African and world markets.
