January 5, 2004
Toronto, January 5, 2004 – McCarthy Tétrault is delighted to welcome new partner Doug Hamilton to its Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety team.
McCarthy Tétrault CEO W. Iain Scott said: "Doug is one of the top lawyers in Canada in his field. Adding Doug to our market-leading environmental and health and safety practices adds ‘strength to strength’. This is a case of one plus one equals three."
Mr. Hamilton was called to the bar in 1986. His practice has focused on environmental and health and safety law, including criminal litigation relating to environmental health and safety offences, civil litigation, administrative tribunal representation, as well as appellate and judicial review panels and regulatory compliance matters. He is also highly regarded for his work on commercial transactions from an environmental perspective.
McCarthy Tétrault’s Environmental and Labour lawyers are consistently recognized as some of the top practitioners in their field in Canada by publications such as the International Financial Law Review and the Guide to the Leading 500 Lawyers in Canada. The firm is at the forefront of emerging environmental and occupational health and safety issues affecting the public and private sector across Canada.
McCarthy Tétrault, Canada's premier law firm, has a significant presence in all major financial centres in Canada as well as in New York and London. With close to 800 practitioners, we regularly advise on many of the largest transactions and cases in Canada and around the world. Chambers Global, an authoritative legal directory, cites McCarthy Tétrault as the number one law firm in Canada for 2003.
