McCarthy Tétrault’s John Boscariol and David Tennant win Client Choice Awards from International Law Office
Toronto, March 3, 2011 — McCarthy Tétrault partners John Boscariol and David Tennant have been honoured with 2011 Client Choice Awards for Canada from the International Law Office (ILO), a London-based organization that serves global corporate counsel. Mr. Boscariol has been recognized for outstanding service to clients on international trade and customs issues, while Mr. Tennant has been recognized for his exceptional service to clients involved in mergers and acquisitions.
"We are especially proud of awards such as the ones John and David have earned from the ILO, because they recognize what we strive for every day: delivering better results and a better experience for our clients," said Marc-André Blanchard, Chair and CEO of McCarthy Tétrault. "All of our talented professionals share John’s and David’s passion and commitment for making a difference for our clients. We congratulate them on behalf of all of us at the firm!"
The awards recognize law firms and individual lawyers in more than 45 jurisdictions worldwide, for adding real value to their clients’ businesses. Only corporate counsel are eligible to nominate firms and lawyers whose work stands above their competitors’. This year’s winners were chosen from assessments completed by more than 2,000 corporate counsel around the world.
John Boscariol is head of the firm’s International Trade and Investment Law Group, and is based in Toronto. He advises private and public sector clients on disputes, compliance and enforcement matters arising under international trade and investment agreements, export controls and economic sanctions, defence controls, anti-corruption measures, government procurement, trade remedies, customs and tariff requirements, and other regulations governing the cross-border movement of goods, services and technology.
David Tennant is the firm’s US Markets Practice Leader in Toronto, responsible for co-ordinating relationships with US law firms. His practice is in securities law, with a focus on mergers and acquisitions. He advises clients on contemplated acquisitions, and acts on proxy matters on behalf of shareholders or boards. He serves as securities law counsel for several public company clients, where he advises on board and governance matters.
The International Law Office Client Choice Awards were established in 2005 to recognize those law firms and partners around the world that stand apart for the excellent client care they provide and the quality of their service. Initially awarded just to law firms, this is only the second year the awards have recognized individual lawyers.
