BLG is pleased to announce that the law firm of Shortt Hanbidge Richardson & Welch has officially joined the Waterloo Region office of Borden Ladner Gervais LLP. David Shortt, Ken Hanbidge, Larry Richardson and Lorene Welch became part of BLG on January 1, 2008, and will both complement and expand the Firm’s client service offerings in the areas of business law, real estate, and corporate finance.

The four lawyers specialize in corporate commercial business law, including commercial and residential real estate, and wills and estates. All are well-known in the Waterloo Region, having been very involved in local community and charitable organizations for many years.

'The Region of Waterloo is unique. For over 30 years Shortt Hanbidge was a trusted legal advisor and we continue to be just as committed to maintaining the same close working relationship with all our clients as part of BLG,' states Dave Shortt.

David, Ken, Larry, Lorene and their support staff will continue to work from their current office (now BLG) at 7 Union Street East in Waterloo until early April 2008, when both offices will relocate to Waterloo City Centre at 100 Regina St. S.
