McCarthy Tétrault LLP is opening a New York deals office to support U.S. law firms, private equity and clients with Canadian legal matters.
The office will practice Canadian law exclusively and be led by newly appointed managing partner Mark Adkins, a private equity, mergers and acquisitions lawyer originally from Winnipeg and more recently a partner with Blake Cassels and Graydon LLP. He has been a cross border deal lawyer in New York for 15 years.
“I’m really excited about it, it’s just such a great opportunity and fun to build something here, which is really appealing to me,” Adkins told Legal Feeds. “The idea is to have boots on the ground to service our U.S. clients who are doing business in Canada or buying Canadian businesses. The idea of having me down here permanently is to be the anchor for that strategy.”
