The Stringam Story

Stringam LLP is a regional law firm serving clients through our professional, tailored legal services. As a full-service law firm in Western Canada, we strive to always challenge the status quo – providing uncompromising solutions through innovative methods no matter how complex the case is. We offer compassionate yet assertive representation, treating each of our clients like family.

A 100 Year Legacy in Alberta

Stringam LLP has had a long heritage of serving Albertans through our premium legal services. We opened up our first office located in Lethbridge, AB, in 1913. In 1946, the additions of lawyers Briant W. Stringam and Steve Denecky resulted in what was then known as Stringam Denecky LLP. Stringam continued to offer high caliber legal representation for rural Albertans as it grew into a budding law firm.

Growth and Expansion

Over the years, Stringam Denecky LLP has quickly gained a reputation for providing clients with quality, tailored legal advice. By 2003, the firm had nearly quadrupled in size, adding three more offices in Brooks, Fort McMurray, and Medicine Hat. Key acquisitions and additional partners continued throughout the years as Stringam further expanded its services in Alberta.

Stringam LLP Today

January 2016 marked a key moment in Stringam’s history. With a major merger between Stringam Denecky LLP and SGB Law LLP, the two firms collectively joined forces under what we are now known as, Stringam LLP. Today, Stringam is a full-service law firm providing premium legal expertise to clients throughout Western Canada. 

Our law firm is unlike any firm in Western Canada. We are rooted in our rich heritage, but at the same time forward-thinking in our approach – truly UNCOMMON Law!
