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.
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.
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.
