What’s in a Name?
Lakefield LLP began as WMCZ Lawyers in 1996 and rebranded in 2021 to reflect the evolution in our team and our approach to the practice of law.
With over 100,000 lakes and infinite fields, the Lakefield name pays homage to Saskatchewan’s beautiful geography. Our corporate office at River Landing in downtown Saskatoon overlooks the water that reminds us of our beautiful lake land to the north. Our legal practice is deeply rooted in agribusiness, which connects us to the entrepreneurial spirit exhibited in our fields to the south.
The name Lakefield is not solely about our location. It represents the work hard/play hard balance that is our aspiration. Our team works hard, both for and with our clients, and from the field to the lake, we celebrate our mutual successes with the same vigor.
Our logo also carries an important message. It not only signifies the interplay of a blue wave and gold sheaf, it is also like a fingerprint, representing our unique approach to the business of law, as well as the personal touch that we add to the provision of legal services.
