Established in 1987, McCarthy Tétrault’s London office ranks among the largest offices of any Canadian law firm in Europe. The office actively advises clients from around the globe on English law with transactions and projects (our London lawyers also provide advice on Canadian legal matters to those same clients) and on all aspects of dispute resolution including international arbitration.
Our London office fields corporate commercial and M&A practitioners, all of whom are qualified to practise English law, together with litigation and international arbitration practitioners with worldwide experience.
The office regularly handles major international oil and gas, mining, power, technology and telecommunications transactions, including corporate financings (whether equity-, debt- or project-based), and mergers and acquisitions. In fact, the firm has acted as both English and Canadian counsel on more equity financings (including new stock exchange listings) in London by Canadian companies than any other law firm. In addition, it has extensive experience in relation to high value commercial disputes in the High Court in London (and in other jurisdictions) and those which are the subject to international arbitration (ICC, UNCITRAL and LCIA).
Our London office specializes in assisting clients with their transatlantic transactions and disputes.
We are among the largest Canadian law firms in London and we are proud to be charter members of the Canada–UK Chamber of Commerce, represented on its board of directors.
