Québec City

Our Québec City office is not only recognized for its long and prestigious history, but also for its dynamic team of lawyers and their determination to always be on top of the industry. Our lawyers are acclaimed for their legal, corporate and political expertise at all regional, national and international levels.

François-Xavier Drouin founded his own firm in Québec City in 1872 and his descendants, including his great grandson, Richard Drouin, have upheld the family tradition. Drouin et Associés of Québec City merged with Clarkson Tétrault of Montréal in 1985.

In 1990, Clarkson Tétrault and McCarthy & McCarthy merged to become McCarthy Tétrault. It must be noted that Richard Drouin rapidly became famous for his deep involvement in energy law in Canada and abroad. Since then, our office, located in the heart of Québec City, has held a position of strength in the legal marketplace and the corporate community. We provide advice and representation to an impressive and diversified business clientele.

Our firm experience, gained through numerous major transactions and complex judicial proceedings, provides our clients with leadership in top-quality services in a large range of areas, in both French and English.

We are a versatile, dynamic and creative team. McCarthy Tétrault (Québec) includes leaders in corporate finance, infrastructure financing, mergers and acquisitions, securities, as well as medical liability, commercial law, bankruptcy, labour and energy (particularly wind power), hydroelectricity and natural gas. These solid assets, along with our lawyers' global expertise, are certainly unparalleled benefits for our valued clientele.
