No competition practice in Canada has grown at the rate of McCarthy Tétrault LLP, which this year poached star litigator and Who’s Who nominee Neil Finkelstein from rival Blakes, promoted associate Dominic Thérien to partner and added litigators Jill Yates and Doug Yoshida to the group. Combine that with its hiring of top-tier lawyers Randal T Hughes and Donald B Houston, from Fraser Milner Casgrain LLP two years ago, and the McCarthy team has become the practice to catch in Canada.
Anchored by Who’s Who nominees Hughes, Houston, Finkelstein, Yves Bériault, Madeleine Renaud and Oliver Borgers, the McCarthy Tétrault team has built on a strong merger practice and expanded to include national and international cartel work, as well as follow-on class actions and other litigation in all provinces in Canada.
Over the past year, the firm has helped guide Chrysler through its merger with Fiat, the Dow Chemical Company in its tie-up with Rohm and Haas, and SAP’s purchase of BusinessObjects, among a slew of other deals.
