Last week we told you that Bennett Jones LLP was bringing over a group of six top mining lawyers from rival Fraser Milner Casgrain LLP. In fact, the final tally is eleven lawyers.

In addition to the six senior lawyers first reported, which included senior Counsel John Sabine and partners Michael Melanson, Sander Grieve, Linda Misetich Dann, Abbas Ali Khan and James Clare, there is another partner and four associates. The partner is Ali Naushahi. The associates are Elianeth Alicea, Jamie Au, Tiffany Canzano and Justin Park, Bennett Jones said on Tuesday.

"This is a remarkable team of lawyers, and we are delighted to have them join Bennett Jones," Bennett Jones chairman and chief executive officer Hugh MacKinnon said.

The departures from FMC come after the firm agreed to join with a U.K. firm and a firm with dual U.S. and U.K. head offices to form a more international firm called Dentons, which would rank among the world's biggest legal agglomerations. In a statement last week, FMC said it that some upheaval was expected as part of the merger, and that the firm was still satisfied with the new international strategy.
