TAGLaw's New Mexico Member Firm, Lewis & Roca, Handles it All
The official website of the State of New Mexico proudly claims, "New Mexico is rich in personality. No other state can claim our geographical or cultural diversity, or match our historic complexity. "  While Lewis and Roca's Albuquerque office might not choose to defend that claim in a court of law, the firm's range of practices attests to its plausibility.  As the second fastest growing city in the United States, Albuquerque presents a challenging legal environment.  Lewis and Roca is up to the challenge.  Learn more about them from their firm profile on this website.

McLeod "Punches Above its Weight" 

The Financial Post (Canada) has ranked McLeod & Company LLP as #14 in the country as Issuer Legal Counsel in the Junior Oil & Gas sector. It is wonderful to have the firm and our Corporate Department recognized in a leading national newspaper.

Congratulations to Bill Walker the deal maker. Good work.

The lead-in to the article says, "Consolidation is the next step when market conditions limit growth.  Even now, lawyers report that activity among junior companies -- especially gas producers -- is high, as firms get defensive, jocky for position and look for ways to survive."  The headline, under "M&A" says "Juniors Poised for Mergers."
