McInnes Cooper’s heritage lies in some of the most well-respected firms in Atlantic Canada. Through strategic alliances and partnerships with firms in Charlottetown, Fredericton, St. John’s and Sydney, the firm expanded its mandate to serve clients region-wide.
McInnes Cooper further expanded its footprint into Moncton, when partners Bernie Miller and Eric LeDrew opened the Moncton office in 1997 with Moncton lawyer Robert Radford, QC. In 2000, with the opening of the Saint John office, the firm had six locations in Atlantic Canada.
The St. John’s office grew further when McInnes Cooper merged with Ottenheimer Baker in 2014.
In 2022, McInnes Cooper expanded its reach in the Cape Breton market through a merger with The Breton Law Group, a firm based in Sydney, Cape Breton. The following spring, the firm strengthened its presence in Cape Breton by merging with another Sydney firm, LaFosse MacLeod.
We remain committed to the continued success of our region and clients.
McInnes Cooper has continued to expand to serve the needs of its clients and focus on their success, including working with international clients through our Lex Mundi membership.
