SCG Legal is one of Canada’s – and the world’s – leading law firm networks.

Founded in 1989 by the governors of 17 American states, it began with the premise that clients would be better served by lawyers who not only knew the law but were also familiar with how and by whom it is made – a view that ultimately led them to locate the law firms with which they later became associated in their respective state capitals and major commercial centers.

When they eventually expanded the network to include Canada, they pursued a similar strategy. Instead of only one firm with many “branches” to serve all of Canada, they recruited nine different independent firms renowned for their impressive legal talent and deep local “roots.”

Today, SCG Legal has more firms in more places in Canada than any other Chambers-ranked law firm network in the world, three-quarters of which are themselves Chambers-ranked. They include:

Field Law* Alberta
Clark Wilson* British Columbia
Taylor McCaffrey* Manitoba
Bingham Law New Brunswick
Benson Buffett* Newfoundland & Labrador
Field Law* Northwest Territories
Wickwire Holm* Nova Scotia
Field Law* Nunavut
WeirFoulds* Ontario
Dunton Rainville Quebec
Kanuka Thuringer* Saskatchewan
Field Law* Yukon

What these firms offer is the opportunity to work closely with experienced lawyers who give their clients the kind of personal attention larger firms often promise but seldom deliver – and at generally far more reasonable billing rates.

SCG Legal’s Canadian firms confer monthly on legal developments in Canada – and more often, when necessary. In addition, they meet as a group at a different firm’s office every year to discuss trends in the law and the Canadian economy and share strategies to address the myriad challenges affecting their clients. In short, SCG Legal’s Canadian firms deliver what its national competitors cannot – exceptional client service and sophisticated legal advice, minus the “provincialism.”

SCG Legal didn’t get to be a Band 1 law firm network in Canada on its own. Its firms made that happen. Discover what they can make happen for your business.
