Dentons is pleased to announce the Right Honourable Stephen Harper, the 22nd Prime Minister of Canada, has affiliated with Dentons.
Mr. Harper and his firm, Harper & Associates Consulting, will work out of Dentons’ Calgary office and be engaged as a consultant with the Firm’s worldwide team and clients. Building on his international experience and network as a G-7 leader, Mr. Harper will provide advice to clients on market access, managing global geopolitical and economic risk, and how to maximize value in global markets.
“This is outstanding news for Dentons and for our clients,” said Elliott Portnoy, Dentons’ Global Chief Executive Officer. “Mr. Harper’s experience as a G-7 leader will provide invaluable perspective for our clients and our team.”
Mr. Harper served as the Prime Minister of Canada for nearly ten years, from February 6, 2006, to November 4, 2015. As Prime Minister, Mr. Harper lowered taxes, balanced the federal budget, and made critical investments in infrastructure and health care. His government’s legacy also includes expanding Canada’s free trade access and effectively steering the nation—maintaining its strong G-7 economy—through the worst global recession since the Great Depression. He is a respected statesman and an accomplished executive.
Mr. Harper’s consultancy with Dentons is an excellent fit—the world’s largest law firm is proud to offer clients the strategic, diplomatic business counsel of a deep bench of experienced leaders, including the Right Honourable Jean Chrétien, former Prime Minister of Canada; Gordon Giffin, former US Ambassador to Canada; Gary Doer, former Canadian Ambassador to the United States; Jeff Bleich, former US Ambassador to Australia and special counsel to President Obama; Joe Andrew, former Chairman of the Democratic National Committee; the Honourable James Moore, former Minister of Industry for Canada; and many other team members who have served in influential roles.
“Dentons’ clients will benefit immeasurably from Mr. Harper’s exceptional skills and experience with getting deals done at the critical intersection of business, government and cross-border relations,” said Joe Andrew, Dentons’ Global Chairman. “We greatly look forward to working with him.”
“Dentons is a dynamic, global firm that is uniquely able to help clients create value through its expansive reach and capacity across a range of legal and business services. I am excited to announce my strategic affiliation with Dentons, and look forward to helping clients from around the world enter new markets,” said the Right Honourable Stephen Harper, Chairman and CEO of Harper & Associates Consulting.
“We are excited about the global experience and vision Mr. Harper brings to Dentons and to our clients,” said Chris Pinnington, Dentons’ Canada Chief Executive Officer. “His consultancy adds even greater depth and perspective to our exceptional team of international business advisors, further strengthening the unmatched talent and services we offer clients in Canada and around the world.”
Mr. Harper holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in economics from the University of Calgary and was first elected as a Member of Canada’s House of Commons in 1993. In 2006, Time magazine named him “Canada’s Newsmaker of the Year” and, in 2008, he was the first Canadian to be awarded the Presidential Gold Medallion for Humanitarianism by B'nai B'rith International. In 2011, Mr. Harper was honored by Alberta's Blood tribe; he was made honorary chief of the Kainai Nation. During his career, Mr. Harper has been recognized with the Woodrow Wilson Award for his public service (2006); the World Statesman of the Year award (2012); the Order of Liberty, Ukraine’s highest award for foreigners (2016); and the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond and Golden Jubilee Medals for Canada (2012 and 2002).
