News Mar 5, 2024

McMillan and 93 of its lawyers have reached a new height in the 2024 Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory.

The firm is listed in 20 practice areas including as Most Frequently Recommended in Banking & Financial Institutions, Competition Law and Transportation (Rail & Road) and thrilled to have achieved 3 New Rankings for Derivative Instruments, Franchise Law and Project Finance.

Our firm’s remarkable growth in the directory is a testament to the responsiveness of our lawyers who bring exceptional industry and sector insights to help our clients stay ahead.
