About this office:
MacPherson Leslie & Tyerman LLP ("MLT") has a culture that emphasizes quality, cost-effective legal services, mutual respect and teamwork. The sophistication of our practice and our national reputation for excellence flow directly from that culture. We work hard to maintain it.
A fundamental feature of our practice philosophy is that we see our clients as clients of the firm rather than of individual lawyers. This approach matches the expertise of our lawyers with the particular legal requirements of our clients to ensure that every client receives the best possible advice in a timely manner.
Since its founding in 1920 MLT has grown to become a firm of over 100 lawyers with offices in Regina, Calgary, Edmonton and Saskatoon. Although much of our practice is focused in Saskatchewan and Alberta, we have always been actively involved in assignments in other Canadian jurisdictions, the United States and elsewhere in the world. As part of our commitment to serve our clients with business ventures beyond western Canada we became a founding member of "Lex Mundi," an association of over 15,000 lawyers practicing in more than 150 jurisdictions worldwide.
