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!
