Borden Ladner Gervais, a leading Canadian firm, announced Wednesday the opening of an office in Beijing. The firm, which specializes in business and IP law, cited China’s growing economic significance to Canada as the impetus for its new outpost.

The firm will not practice law locally, but instead focus on business development and growing its relationship with current Chinese clients.
