Today, CLC consists of ten independent law firms with lawyers qualified to practice law in every jurisdiction in Canada.
CLC’s structure is specifically designed to serve and co-ordinate the client’s needs on both a regional and a national basis. This combined regional and national focus allows co-ordinated defence strategies to be developed and followed in multiple jurisdictions throughout the litigation process. In cases of national significance, clients are offered unified and consistent advocacy while receiving the highest level of local knowledge in each venue. It also gives clients the option of co-ordinating the provision of national legal services through one central contact, or alternatively, through individual contacts at the local level. At the same time, CLC provides communication management within the organization together with standardized, consistent legal services supported by a national organization of top quality professionals.
In providing these services, CLC’s member firms are at the forefront in developing computerized reporting and file management to increase efficiency and to control costs.
