March 25, 2011




Toronto, March 25, 2011 — Success in helping clients achieve their goals has helped McCarthy Tétrault achieve a distinction of its own: the firm has come out on top in an independent survey of Canadian law firms. The ranking, placing McCarthy Tétrault in the top position, was by the Financial Post, and is based on UK publisher Chambers and Partners’ independent appraisal of Canadian law firms. The evaluation was released in the 2011 edition of Chambers Global, a directory used by in-house counsel and business executives worldwide.

Cited in Chambers Global for the "high standards" of its work, McCarthy Tétrault was recognized as a Band 1 firm in 10 practice areas, more than any other Canadian firm. A testament to its depth in talent and expertise, McCarthy Tétrault was ranked in 20 of 21 practice areas.

"We promise clients that the way we work makes our lawyers an extension of their team, and turns their goals into our goals," said Marc-André Blanchard, Chair and CEO of McCarthy Tétrault. "To have an independent evaluator affirm that what we promise to clients is what we deliver is very rewarding. We are grateful to our clients for continually providing us with interesting work that is important to their business objectives. All of our legal professionals and staff share in this achievement, and I congratulate them."

Chambers Global ranks approximately 60 Canadian law firms and 1,000 Canadian lawyers. The rankings are the result of a nine-month process which includes interviews with clients.
