  1. Deal of the Year
  2. Most Innovative of the Year

  4. Technology, Media, and Telecom Deal of the Year

McCarthy Tétrault has the best showing among Canadian law firms in the list of awards finalists, with no other Canada-based firm advising on more than two shortlisted deals. Each of the transactions our team acted on involved multiple jurisdictions and intricate cross-border considerations.

  • Walt Disney’s acquisition of television and film assets of Twenty-First Century Fox
