McMillan LLP Announces Executive Changes

McMillan LLP announced a new management model and a new leadership team. The new management model reflects the priority the firm places on collaboration as a key driver of the service quality and value it provides business clients across many industries and disciplines. McMillan has moved from a CEO/COO model to an Executive Committee model that is designed to ensure that the firm derives maximum benefit from the diverse views, skills and expertise that each of the four members of the new Executive Committee brings to the table. The Committee members are Teresa Dufort, David Dunlop, Tim Murphy and Stephen Wortley with Ms. Dufort assuming the role of Chief Executive Officer. Ms. Dufort, a graduate of Osgoode Hall Law School, has been with McMillan since 1985. A litigation lawyer, she is Co-Leader of the firm's Product Liability Defence and Regulatory Group. The remaining Executive Committee members, David Dunlop, Tim Murphy and Stephen Wortley, are all highly valued partners in the firm's business law practice with a variety and depth of firm and practice area management experience. All four Executive Committee members will continue in active practice. After ten years as the firm's CEO, leading restructuring and insolvency partner, Andrew Kent, will return to fulltime practice. Ms. Dufort is one of a modest number of women to lead major Canadian law firms. Her appointment is a reflection of the firm's ongoing commitment to a work environment where women, as well as diverse groups, have the opportunity to achieve at the higher levels.
