Wildeboer Dellelce was founded in 1993 by five partners who had the vision of building a standalone corporate finance and tax law firm that would compete with Canada’s much larger, established corporate law firms. In its first week the firm purchased a pool table for its library. While the pool table does not get as much use today as in those early days, it still serves as a symbol of the firm’s identity and culture.
From 2001-2011, the firm maintained a branch office in Waterloo and the firm continues to service its Kitchener-Waterloo client base in the technology and knowledge based industries out of its Toronto office. In 2006 the firm moved from offices in One First Canadian Place to its own building, Wildeboer Dellelce Place, at the corner of Bay and Richmond Streets in Toronto.
Wildeboer Dellelce is today decidedly different from what most commonly defines a Bay Street law firm: the firm considers itself to be an entrepreneurial force for legal practice innovation and one of Canada’s most innovative and entrepreneurial law firms, continually changing the definition of what it means to be a partner and trusted adviser to business. Wildeboer Dellelce invests in the success of its clients, serving as business law advisers at all stages of the business lifecycle from start-up to industry leader.
