As a Platinum Sponsor, Ricoh Canada has had a fantastic experience working with CALA. Evolving from business partners to friends, we’ve been very fortunate to be a part of the community for over 15 years. This relationship has not only allowed our team to hone in on the needs of Calgary’s unique legal community, but it’s also helped us foster key relationships with stakeholders and key decision-makers from law firms of every size. Being a part of the association has provided us with the opportunity to create tailored solutions that best serve those in the business of law.
