McCarthy Tétrault Strengthens Financial Services Regulatory and Transactional Expertise with Addition of Hartley Lefton
McCarthy Tétrault is pleased to welcome Hartley Lefton as an equity partner to the firm’s market-leading Financial Services Group.
Hartley is recognized as a leading transactional, commercial, governance and regulatory/compliance advisor to clients within the financial sector in Canada, including Fintech/Insurtech companies.
“Hartley leverages his insurance regulatory and transactional expertise, and his experience working with regulators, to ensure clients are not only made aware of regulatory changes, but truly understand how any change impacts each aspect of their business,” said Nancy Carroll, Partner and head of the Insurance and Reinsurance Group at McCarthy Tétrault.
As financial institution regulation becomes more complex and governments and regulators take a closer look at these entities that are tightly intertwined with the Canadian economy, sophisticated and knowledgeable outside counsel can make the difference between the success and failure of critical business initiatives.
“Adding Hartley solidifies the strength of our Financial Services Group, including our Insurance and Reinsurance Group,” said Marc MacMullin, Partner and head of the National Financial Services Group at McCarthy Tétrault. “Clients will benefit from his diligence, resourcefulness and experience within the insurance space.”
McCarthy Tétrault’s National Insurance and Reinsurance Group applies its deep knowledge of insurance law and regulatory practice into pioneering approaches to meet our clients’ needs. As insurance regulation evolves, we help our clients understand changing expectations and compliance requirements. We advise on a broad range of regulatory compliance matters, including those involving corporate governance, risk management, product distribution, market conduct and compliance, outsourcing, anti-money laundering compliance, privacy law compliance and handling privacy breaches, cybersecurity, technology, Insurtech, Fintech, artificial intelligence, blockchain and tax law.
