Stephen Wortley, a partner in the Vancouver and Hong Kong offices, discussed the merger, McMillan's presence in Hong Kong and the need to be proactive and grab opportunities in an article titled Global law firms look to Canada: Part 3 of a 3-part series on Canada's big law firms featured in the July 15, 2011 edition of the Lawyers Weekly

"Lawyers can't wait for someone to call them," laughs Wortley, who spends more than half the year working out of McMillan's office in Hong Kong, which serves as the firm's portal to Asia. "Lawyers and law firms have to have some level of marketing skills, like accounting firms or investment banks, and be out there looking for and grabbing opportunities. Once they do that, they're going to see very tremendous payback with new business."
