Wildeboer Dellelce LLP Turns 25

Thursday, February 1, 2018

NEO Bell 2

February 1, 2018 marks the twenty fifth anniversary of Wildeboer Dellelce.

On February 1st, 1993, six friends opened the doors to their newly formed law firm, Wildeboer Apps. The founding partners of the firm were Rob Wildeboer, Eric Apps, Susan Thomson, Cliff Rand, Alfred Apps and Perry Dellelce. Their collective goals were simple; they wanted to build a business law firm and have more fun practising law.

Twenty-five years later, Wildeboer Dellelce LLP is one of Canada’s top corporate finance transactional law firms with practice areas in corporate, securities, tax, lending and banking, investment funds, structured products and commercial real estate.

Perry Dellelce, the firm’s Managing Partner, states, “As we celebrate our 25 years of growth and success, we are immensely grateful and wish to acknowledge the incredible support of all of our family members, friends and clients over the past two and a half decades. All of these individuals believed in us from the very beginning and were unwavering in their support for the firm and its members, through thick and thin.”

Paul Flint, who has been with the firm since its inception and was the person in charge of all of its operations for years, adds, “While we have grown and matured as a business, Wildeboer Dellelce has never lost its creativity, its fun-loving attitude and its amazing work environment. I am very proud to be part of this firm and am very excited about its future!” Paul Flint is now the Chief Information Officer of the firm.

Rob Wildeboer, now the Executive Chairman of Martinrea International, a client of the firm, states, “The founding principles of the firm were its entrepreneurial spirit, a pragmatic attitude towards the practice of law and a fun and exciting work environment. Now as a client of the firm, I am happy to see that the firm has stayed true to these founding principles; a hallmark of its success.”

To mark its 25th Anniversary, all members of the firm will “Ring the Bell” to open the market at Toronto’s NEO Exchange on February 1, 2018. Later in the day, all members of the firm and all former partners of the firm and their guests will tour its newly renovated offices located at Wildeboer Dellelce Place, 365 Bay Street, Toronto. Following the tour, the firm and its guests will be treated to a Gala Dinner and a trip down memory lane to celebrate a quarter century of service excellence and memories with an eye to its next quarter century of innovation and firsts in the Canadian law firm landscape.


With over 45 professionals, Wildeboer Dellelce is one of Canada's leading transactional business and corporate finance law firms offering clients expertise in corporate finance, securities and private and public M&A along with corporate tax, commercial real estate, debt and structured finance.
