Firm Details

With offices in Regina and Saskatoon, McKercher LLP has over 70 lawyers practicing in all major areas of the law. Since 1926, our lawyers have played an integral role in Saskatchewan’s most significant commercial projects, and have led litigation cases that have shaped Canadian law. We understand the complex and practical legal issues that present unique business, regulatory and legal challenges to our clients.   

Regional Strength  

As one of Saskatchewan’s oldest and largest law firms, McKercher LLP and its lawyers are well-versed in the economic, social and regulatory environment of Saskatchewan. We have offices in Saskatoon, known for a strong commercial and economic hub, and Regina, the provincial capital and centre of government activity. Regional experience is a tremendous asset to our clients, many of whom are leaders in the industries that drive the province’s diverse, growing economy: agriculture, biotechnology, construction, education, First Nations, health care, information technology, manufacturing, mining, oil & gas, real estate, retail, transportation and more.  

Commitment to Clients  

Our client-first philosophy has made us one of Saskatchewan’s top ranked law firms.  We provide high-level counsel and advice on complex business transactions and innovative solutions to diverse legal issues. We act for local clients seeking to grow beyond Saskatchewan, and national and international clients looking to expand into Saskatchewan. We value resourcefulness, efficiency, innovation and integrity. These are the pillars of how we do business.  

Collegial Practice

Many of our lawyers have experience across practice areas; others are more focused in specific areas of practice. Our lawyers share their knowledge in a dynamic collegial environment that puts clients’ best interests first. Our culture attracts both up-and-coming young lawyers and established professionals.  

Global Network  

McKercher LLP is a member of Lawyers Associated Worldwide (LAW), a global association of independent commercial law firms. Members adhere to a single standard of excellence, while sharing local expertise. Wherever life and business take our clients, LAW ensures we can provide responsive, accessible, accountable legal representation.  

Our firm was invited to become a member of the Employment Law Alliance (ELA), the world’s largest network of labour and employment lawyers. Firms are only invited to join after a rigorous due diligence process. With lawyers in more than 135 countries, all 50 U.S. states and every Canadian province, ELA provides multi-state and multi-national businesses with local expertise and seamless services worldwide.  

We are also a member of the Risk Management Counsel of Canada (RMC), a national association of independent law firms who work together to handle multi-jurisdictional insurance law matters. These relationships provide our clients with real value and peace of mind when it comes to insurance law advice and counsel in provinces across Canada.  

Summary

Retaining McKercher LLP for legal services not only provides top-notch counsel when required, it also provides a strong team of lawyers and staff dedicated to Saskatchewan, where we live, work and play.  We are committed to our communities, a trait that is important to businesses operating in the province.   We are very proud to have recently won the National Pro Bono Law Award, reflecting the countless hours our lawyers have dedicated to providing legal services for the disadvantaged and the organizations that serve them.  With over 90 years of experience providing legal services to Saskatchewan, we know our province:  the history, the challenges, and the opportunities.
