Every day, 戴夫 executes on his vision for the future of our firm – one where clients and the industries in which they operate are paramount
As CEO, 戴夫 leads 麦卡锡·特劳特’s mission to be Canada’s premier provider of legal 服务 to public and private enterprises in Canada and around the world. 戴夫 helps the firm achieve this mission by supporting our partners and professionals across the 国家 to deliver creative solutions and exceptional business advice so that clients can achieve their objectives. He drives the firm’s strategy to offer 真正 borderless client service through our commitment to meeting client needs now and in the future.
As leader of one of the most storied firms in the 国家, and with more than 20 years of experience as a litigator, 戴夫 is relentlessly focused on deepening client relationships and building the law firm of tomorrow. Under his leadership, the firm has realigned along the industry lines that matter to our clients, to better serve their needs. In January 2017, he announced 麦卡锡·特劳特’s game-changing acquisition of MT>3 (formerly Wortzmans), the 国家’s top e-Discovery and information governance law firm. This move brought MT>3’s leading expertise in information governance, e-discovery and technology under one roof with the firm’s integrated, national platform to ensure clients receive seamless and superior service. Additionally, in order to better serve the firm’s clients with their cross-border objectives, 戴夫 spearheaded the opening of our 纽约 office in May 2017.
Overseeing almost 600 lawyers and operations in 温哥华, 卡尔加里, 多伦多, 蒙特利尔, 魁北克 City, 纽约 and 伦敦 (UK), 戴夫 has made it a priority to incorporate the perspectives, experiences and insights of people across the firm to build a cohesive plan for the future of the business. He is a vocal advocate for diversity and inclusion. 戴夫 is particularly passionate about removing the barriers which have historically prevented women from advancing in traditional law firms.
戴夫 received his LLB from the 西安大略大学 in 1992 and was called to the Ontario bar in 1994. 戴夫 practised in our litigation group, representing a wide range of clients. In 2012 he was appointed National Practice Group Leader for litigation before assuming the role of CEO in 2016.
