McCarthy Tétrault partner Shevaun McGrath named the only BTI M&A Client Service All-Star based in Canada for 2021

September 13, 2021 - McCarthy Tétrault congratulates partner Shevaun McGrath on being named a BTI M&A Client Service All-Star for 2021 by BTI Consulting Group, recognizing her outstanding client service, advocacy skills and deep understanding of clients’ businesses. Of the 207 lawyers who earned this recognition this year, Shevaun is the only practitioner who is based in Canada (Toronto). This client-driven honour celebrates M&A lawyers across North America who stand out for “delivering the absolute best in client service,” and who combine exceptional legal expertise with practical advice and innovative, effective solutions. Fewer than 1% of attorneys enjoy BTI Client Service All-Star status, according to BTI.

Shevaun, Co-Head of McCarthy Tétrault’s National Private Equity Group, is an accomplished dealmaker who is strongly invested in clients’ success. She is a skilled negotiator whose practice focuses on private equity, mergers and acquisitions, and capital markets. She stands out for her proven ability to assist clients with investment opportunities and her unique instinct for negotiating the best outcomes. She advises domestic and foreign companies, both public and private, on their M&A, divestiture and capital raising activities. In her private equity practice, Shevaun represents institutional investors in their investment activities, including direct investments, investments in private equity and other alternative investment funds and fund formation.

According to BTI, a Client Service All-Star is defined along five metrics: client engagement, investing in clients’ success, legal and business savvy, providing unequivocal advice, and an ability to anticipate what’s next to help clients plan for future.

The methodology behind the All-Star list is solely client-driven and is based on BTI’s Annual Survey of General Counsel. The rankings are informed by more than 325 in-depth, independent telephone interviews with leading legal decision-makers in the M&A space, including corporate counsel from Fortune 1000 and other large companies. The research is independent and lawyers cannot nominate themselves to be added to the list. BTI is a market research firm that conducts custom client surveys as part of its client feedback programs to drive client service delivery.
