Our Clients

Seeking Excellence

Throughout our long and successful history, we have developed an impeccable list of clients for whom we deliver the best legal services available in Canada and abroad. They deserve nothing less. 

Why Do Clients Choose McCarthy Tétrault?

Clients come to us to perform the work that’s most important for the growth and profitability of their business. They may use other firms; in fact, many do. But they call on McCarthy Tétrault for the most challenging, demanding and precedent-setting files.

No other Canadian firm has the scale and depth of McCarthy Tétrault. We have worked hard to build this unique market position. For example, we garnered more individual lawyer Band 1 rankings in the 2012 edition of Chambers Global than any other Canadian law firm, a testament to our expertise and service levels. Infrastructure Journal also identified us as Canada's foremost firm, and one of the Americas' top four firms, to advise on infrastructure project finance transactions in 2011 — in both the Financial Close and Mandate Won categories. In the area of corporate finance, we topped Financial Post's 2011 year-end Canadian corporate finance legal advisory league tables, ranking first in six categories as both issuers' and underwriters' counsel on debt and equity offerings.

We create integrated client teams to serve our clients and offer them value in a way no other Canadian law firm can match. We are less geographic and more client-centred in our focus and efforts.

We also create and foster a level of intimacy for the most comprehensive understanding of our clients’ business and needs so that we always deliver cost-effective and timely legal solutions. It’s important to us that our perception of good value is aligned with our clients’ perception of good value.

Let us turn our integrated competencies, depth of knowledge, expertise and experience into your competitive advantage.

Dialogue Project Management®

We believe that no one knows what matters most to our clients better than our clients themselves. Some of our clients have told us they are looking for more predictability and control of costs. We've responded by mobilizing our people and our resources to enhance our project management capabilities.
