Law firm Bull Housser Tupper merges with Norton Rose Fulbright

One of the world’s fastest-growing law firms will merge with Vancouver’s Bull Housser Tupper (BHT) in a move that will see BHT operate as Norton Rose Fulbright (NRF).

BHT is Vancouver’s sixth-largest law firm with 95 local lawyers, according to Business in Vancouver’s 2016 list of largest law firms.

In April, it celebrated its 125th anniversary by moving into 67,000 square feet on three floors of the Telus Garden office tower.
