Front Cover
Douglas & McIntyre, 2005 - Law firms - 409 pages

A comprehensive history of Canada's first national law firm: the people, the innovations and the unprecedented growth.

McCarthy Tetrault is the largest and one of the most eminent of Canadian law firms, with offices in all the major business centres in Canada as well as in New York and in London, England. It is also one of the oldest, with roots going back 15 years, and has an exceptionally interesting and dynamic recent history.

Noted historian Christopher Moore presents the story of McCarthy Tetrault and the firms that preceded it, within the context of the political and business history of Canada. He shows how the firm's dominance was achieved over many years by combining legal professionalism with consistent strategic planning by a series of strong leaders. This is an illuminating account of the growth of a major firm and is also an important contribution to the history of the legal profession in Canada.
