molson coors

Molson Coors Canada, founded in 1786 by English immigrant John Molson in Montreal on the banks of the St. Lawrence River, is North America’s oldest brewer. Molson was a tenacious entrepreneur and a passionate innovator. He developed his own strain of yeast for brewing and built the first entirely Canadian-made steamboat. The pride of craftsmanship instilled by John Molson over 229 years ago is what makes Molson’s leading beer brands, including Molson Canadian, Coors Light, and Rickard’s, so popular with consumers. We are the largest Canadian brewer with seven brewery facilities and 3,000 employees. John Molson was also a strong civic steward who led a group of private citizens to found Montreal’s first public hospital. The company continues Molson’s commitment to corporate citizenship through charitable initiatives and sports and entertainment sponsorships.

waterstone law group llp

At some firms, the lawyers are generalists: they dabble in a little in too many areas of law. At Waterstone, we believe our clients need and deserve better than a lawyer who is a jack of all trades (and master of none!).

That’s why at our firm, lawyers limit their fields of practice. Each lawyer focuses on a handful of legal areas, allowing them to develop their own robust toolkit for solving our clients’ legal problems.

We have offices in Langley, Chilliwack and Abbotsford, and our lawyers are happy to meet at whichever location is most convenient for you.
