MT❯Align

A community of high-calibre independent contract lawyers with top tier law firm and in-house experience

Your needs are evolving. So are we.

MT❯Align, a division of McCarthy Tétrault, is a community of high-calibre independent contract lawyers with top tier law firm and in-house experience. The community is comprised of lawyers at all levels of experience with a variety of general and specialized skills across Canada to meet your needs.

As business complexity grows, the legal department's reality is changing:

  • Budgets are tightening
  • There is increased pressure to demonstrate value
  • Temporary leave replacements are difficult to source
  • Special projects and urgent issues put a strain on in-house resources
  • Finding time to work on long term efficiency initiatives is harder than ever
     

At the same time, there has never been a better opportunity for legal to be a trusted and strategic advisor to business.

MT❯Align can help in several ways: 

  • Embedded Resources to provide temporary replacements for short-term leaves or to help with overflow work.
  • Outsourced Resources to carry out non-strategic, non-core work such as lower complexity, lower risk agreements, compliance reviews, advertising and marketing reviews, routine corporate matters and summarizing contracts.
  • Process Improvement Project Resources to supplement your existing team to advance process improvement, such as developing contract playbooks, templates and tools, reviewing risk management and compliance programs, maintaining and building knowledge databases.
  • Virtual In-house Counsel for companies with either small or no legal departments or head-count limitations that need part-time or temporary legal resources to support their day to day legal needs.

We work with you to scope the work, offering alternative fee arrangements to suit your budget, provide cost certainty and align our interests. The cost savings achieved by driving efficiency and the value generated by focusing your team on high-value business priorities provides a compelling business case.
