For almost 50 years McLennan Ross has had the privilege of providing its legal services in the North.
In 1999, McLennan Ross proudly opened its Yellowknife office to specifically address the local needs of governments, municipalities, individuals, corporations and others living, and doing business in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. Since then, our Yellowknife office has grown to one of the largest private law firms in the North with four lawyers based in Yellowknife, two of whom are listed in Best Lawyers Canada 2012.
Collectively these four lawyers have over 65 years legal experience. Although committed to serving our clients with lawyers resident in Yellowknife, we can also call upon the expertise of 15 lawyers resident in Edmonton and Calgary who are also licensed to practice in the Northwest Territories and/or Nunavut. Together we offer businesses in the NWT and Nunavut access to a full range of resources and legal services.
We provide services to our clients in the NWT and Nunavut in a variety of practice areas including: administrative law; commercial & construction litigation; corporate commercial securities; energy, environmental & regulatory; estates, trusts & taxation; health law; insurance & risk management; labour & employment, municipal and restructuring & insolvency.
Our Northern lawyers are backed by the firm’s full-time support departments including accounting, IT, library services and word processing. These lawyers, along with our experienced and knowledgeable staff, are able to provide a full range of legal services, in an effective and efficient manner, to clients throughout the North.
Our Northern clients include both small and large businesses across a variety of industries, sole proprietorships, various levels of government and government agencies, various municipalities and municipal boards and health authorities.
