Large Firm Growth - 2014 Edition

Every year, the Law Times releases numbers on how many lawyers are employed by the largest firms in Canada. I blogged about the trends that this survey shows last year (short version: little growth at the big firms).  Now that the Law Times has released its numbers for this year, we can run update the numbers and see if anything has changed.  Even with the recent fall of Heenan Blaikie, the trend seems to be fairly similar to last year: little growth overall at the big firms.

Injunctions are a complex area of the law.  Injunctions can be even more complex when parties (or even judges) starting becoming imprecise about the words used to describe an injunction.  There are many different types of injunctions, with each having a different effect, and each having different (albeit similar) requirements under the law if you want to obtain one. So bear with me, while I step into a more technical legal area, and try to clarify (which great help from a recent Ontario Court of Appeal case) the difference between interim, interlocutory, mandatory and final injunctions.
