One of our senior partners, Perry D. Erhardt, Q.C., acts as pro bono counsel advising the RIIS (Regina Indian Industrial School) Commemorative Association Inc., and recently helped them with a land transfer from the federal government and RCMP to ensure that the sacred land holding the bodies of dozens of Indigenous children would remain in the care of the RIIS Commemorative Association. The cemetery lands were previously designated as heritage properties. The land transfer to RIIS represents an important step in the path to reconciliation, and ensures that the memories of the children and the impact of the industrial school will not be forgotten. Our firm is honoured to have played a small part in these events, and we are committed to the journey toward reconciliation.

2017 marks 40 years of serving clients in Regina and across Saskatchewan for Olive Waller Zinkhan and Waller!

In 1977, four founding partners established a general practice law firm in Regina, and they soon became leaders in advising clients in the cooperative and private sectors. Areas of expertise were developed over the years in corporate transactions, financing and litigation as the firm grew in number and diversity. We now stand at 20 lawyers strong, and work to foster a collegial and collaborative workplace.

Community partnerships have been a hallmark of OWZW as it has sponsored and co-sponsored major events in support of the Regina Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity, and many others. This tradition of providing a hand up continues at our firm.

Please join us in celebrating our 40th anniversary! We look forward to a future of opportunity and continued work with you. Cheers!

The lawyers and employees in our office raised money for the United Way GenNext Group’s “Cookie Walk”. OWZW purchased enough cookies to be declared the ‘top cookie buying law firm’. Proceeds from the United Way’s Cookie Walk will be used to build literacy kits for early childhood development programs in Regina.
