Why Us?

McLennan Ross is one of Western Canada’s premier law firms.

We have been involved in some of the most complex and impactful litigation in the west since we opened our doors in 1903. We are passionate about our work and offer an interesting, rewarding, and personable work environment.

Practicing primarily in a team environment, our people work hard and are rewarded for success and “going that extra mile” to exceed our clients’ expectations. Our firm is made up of lawyers who genuinely love what they do. We pride ourselves on combining sophisticated legal acumen with common sense.

At McLennan Ross, we combine the stability of our legacy with a fervent pursuit of development and growth. Our history informs our future but we are always looking forward.

We don’t just talk the talk. We walk the walk.

Our lawyers have been involved in numerous landmark cases, at all levels of the Canadian judicial system including the Supreme Court of Canada. Many of our cases have profoundly influenced the legal framework in which many businesses operate today.

With over 115 lawyers in our firm's three offices (Edmonton, Calgary, and Yellowknife), our professionals have access to all the resources, tools, and challenging work they need to grow and succeed.
