In the cover story of Canadian Lawyer, "Lateral Thinking," the recent move of 13 lawyers to Bennett Jones from another Canadian firm is noted. Stephen Bowman comments in the article, "it was a natural for us to be interested in the opportunity to expand our mining practice significantly in one go." Stephen also comments, "I think movement will be a continuing part of the profession as we face more changes in technology and in the kinds of ways people get legal services and the continuing evolution of the balance between in-house and external counsel." Of the new arrivals, Stephen says, "They have quite a co-ordinated practice in many respects. But for us the process of integrating new lawyers into the firm is something we're pretty experienced at and something we work hard at getting right."
