Our history as community leaders in Southern Alberta is long and rich.
Initially established as Warren & Stewart LLP by William (Bill) J. Warren, Q.C. and Fred Stewart, Q.C., the firm soon became Warren Raymaker & Stewart when Darryl Raymaker, Q.C. joined in 1970. The firm changed names again in 1975 after David Tettensor, Q.C. added his name to the letterhead just five years after starting with the firm as a summer student. As the firm continued to grow, it later became known as Warren Tettensor and then Warren Tettensor Amantea with the onboarding of Joe Amantea, who is now the firm’s longest serving lawyer. In October 2013, following the retirement of David Tettensor, Bob Benson joined his long-time legal colleagues as a named partner, changing the firm to Warren Benson Amantea LLP. As the firm looks forward to serving the community for many years to come, it has changed its name to WBA Law LLP, paying homage to the strong traditions that has made it successful for fifty years while at the same time positioning itself to respond to the ever changing needs of the Alberta marketplace.
Since its inception, WBA Law has stayed true to the core values established by its founding partners; treat all clients equally and with integrity, and always provide excellent, individualized service. WBA Law takes great pride in its ability to offer clients exceptional, efficient, and customized solutions for their business and personal needs.
WBA Law has maintained a strong focus on our community and our roots over time. In fact, these things are what have created a large part of our identity. WBA Law owes a great measure of its success to its extensive community involvement, and we believe that in order to succeed, we must continue to foster meaningful relationships outside of the office; some of which were established almost 50 years ago!
Our clients include chartered banks and other lenders, land developers and home builders, home warranty providers, pension funds, accounting firms, large and small businesses, and individual private clients. We are experts in a wide range of disciplines, including business law, litigation, banking and finance, construction, employment law, commercial and residential real estate, and family law.
Whether your matter is personal or business-related, large or small, WBA Law LLP has the skill and experience to assist you.
