Working as a team makes all the difference.

We have built a culture of collaboration and teamwork: with each other across Canada, with our clients, with in-house counsel and with the law firms with which we work. This allows us to achieve the results that are important to our clients.

We are proud of our culture; most of our files require teams to be drawn from a number of practice areas, and we regularly share files across offices. As a student, you will be treated as a valued member of the team. You will garner firsthand experience interacting with clients, attending strategy sessions, working on transactional closing teams and going to court. Collaboration and teamwork are truly part of our culture, starting with our students and articling students who make a real difference in the success of the team.

Meet Our Teams
At our firm, we offer you the rare opportunity of working alongside some of the brightest legal minds in the profession, in an environment where your skills will be carefully nurtured and honed.

Our unique culture of collaboration is the foundation of everything we do. This means that every transaction and case is just another opportunity to work with a hand-picked team of experts who have unparalleled strength in their practice areas. Get a real taste of our core practice and cutting-edge areas by reading some testimonials from our students.

A Day in The Life

"The best way to describe a typical day at McCarthy Tétrault is teamwork. As a student, one quickly realizes that the emphasis is on developing relationships with the various individuals that comprise the organization.

McCarthy Tétrault’s day-to-day working philosophy is that the management team, associates and partners should be as accessible as the students, articling students and support staff, to ensure that everyone works closely and collaboratively.

During the recruitment process, I was often asked what type of working environment I was looking for. My answer was always the same: an environment where people work together humbly and respectfully. Not a single day has passed when I felt that the prevailing environment at McCarthy Tétrault did not correspond to this description.

In short, a typical day at McCarthy Tétrault is a collaborative effort with the more than 1,500 people within this organization, all of whom are willing to help and support us."
