Accelerating success in Hamilton and beyond

Celebrating 25 Years in Hamilton badgeHarnessing our broad industry expertise, far-reaching global platform, and forward-thinking partnerships with key local stakeholders, we connect Hamilton to a world of opportunity. No other law firm wants to accelerate growth more than we do - and no other firm is as ambitious for its clients' success the way we are.

We believe that partnerships, collaboration and an unwavering focus on the greater good will accelerate growth for all. We're on a mission to do what's right - and to do what's next - for our clients and our community.

Moving to the Heart of Innovation

At Gowling WLG, we want to unlock Hamilton's potential by acting as an economic accelerator and a global connector. Our firm continues to play a growing role in the region's innovation ecosystem as the research, technology and manufacturing sectors thrive at home and abroad.

In keeping with that mission, Gowling WLG Hamilton will soon call McMaster Innovation Park (MIP) our home. This move will strengthen our ability to enhance strategic partnerships by staying close to those who are driving progress - the researchers, the engineers, the designers.

By becoming part of Hamilton's growing hub of innovation - where people live, work and create - we can spark positive social impact by actively supporting city-building and economic development as we forge new pathways between local possibilities and global opportunities.
