Introducing MT❯iplus – acquiring global talent with ease

Montreal, March 11, 2019 – McCarthy Tétrault is pleased to announce the launch of MT❯iplus to provide clients with streamlined service on business immigration matters. In today’s business climate, clients often need to onboard foreign talent or transfer employees between global divisions. As the latest offering under the MT❯Division platform, MT❯iplus combines the firm’s longstanding experience and excellence around immigration law with new technologies to enhance efficiency and deliver better results.

With a deep understanding of the logistical realities of resettling talent, and the range of demands placed on companies, MT❯iplus provides solutions that address the legal and personal nature of immigration. Our team is equipped with global resources and specializations in immigration matters.

“Talent sourcing and migration have become vital to a company’s strategy in driving success. New hires and current employees need to move with ease and the MT❯iplus team is comprised of lawyers and legal professionals experienced in navigating immigration matters and familiar with the sensitivities of immigrating,” says Stéphane Duval, Partner lead for the firm’s Immigration Law Practice.

“The decision to shift the Immigration Practice to the MT❯iplus platform was based on growing demand to provide a more concentrated and focused national offering to clients,” says Christopher McHardy, Partner in the firm’s Labour & Employment Group. “We’re excited about the added value that we can provide clients through the MT❯iplus offering.”

MT❯iplus remains a wholly owned division of McCarthy Tétrault LLP and continues to offer the optimal level of legal immigration support and personal attention tailored to client needs, including:
