Perry Spitznagel, vice-chairman and managing partner of the firm's Calgary office is extensively quoted in "Oil & Gas Fuel Other Industries: Law firm bucks the perks and bonuses trend," written by Derek Sankey of CanWest News Service. While the article highlights some of the hot sectors in Alberta, it specifically addresses how the growth and activity in the oil and gas industry has influenced the legal industry - especially when it comes to employment rates. During a period in time where several business in Alberta are trying to keep-up with burgeoning demand for workers, the legal industry is experiencing less than 2 percent unemployment levels, among the country's lowest, with demand for services surging due to strong energy sector activity.
