Stikeman Elliott LLP is a Canadian business law firm founded in 1952 by H. Heward Stikeman and Fraser Elliott.[2] The firm has offices located in Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary, Vancouver, New York, London and Sydney.


Heward Stikeman and Fraser Elliott established a tax boutique firm in Montreal in 1952. The firm expanded throughout the ensuing years, eventually becoming a full-service business law firm. Stikeman Elliott has never merged with another firm, one of the few Bay Street firms to not do so.[2] When it expanded to Toronto in 1970, two new partners were added, Donald Bowman and John Robarts, and the Toronto office became Stikeman, Elliott, Robarts and Bowman.

One of the first national firms to maintain an office in Quebec, along with McCarthy Tétrault, Stikeman Elliott is widely considered one of the best firms in Quebec. The firm is one of the Seven Sisters, a group of seven prominent Canadian law firms.
