TORONTO � The Canadian law firm Blake, Cassels & Graydon has announced that Brock Gibson has been elected chairman, effective January 1, 2009. Gibson is a partner in the firm’s Calgary office. Christie has served as chairman for eight years, the maximum permitted by the firm’s partnership agreement. As chair, Gibson will work with Rob Granatstein, the firm’s national managing partner, to provide national leadership. Gibson, a business lawyer, will continue working with clients after he assumes his new role. “Brock’s election marks the first time Blakes has selected a chairman from an office other than Toronto,” Jim Christie, the firm’s current chairman, said in a news release. “It reflects the truly national and international reality of Blakes, where almost half of our lawyers now practise in cities other than Toronto, and the increasingly global nature of our business.” Blakes has more than 550 lawyers in Canada, the United States, Europe and China.
