History of Canadian law firms

Christopher Moore pointed me to an interesting article by Christopher Guly in The Lawyers Weekly on the history of Canadian law firms, tracing the rise of larger firms.

Gully notes that the process has been slower than in the US. Its partly a matter of relative size of the two markets, but is probably also linked to institutional factors. My impression is that the sizing process has been faster in Australia, a significantly smaller country.
