MT+Co. in Financial Post Article on Small Law Firms

By MT+Co. - July 6, 2013 under MT+Co.

“A new breed of smaller firms is using technology and innovative practice ideas to challenge the corporate dominance of big firms.” In his article on how the practice of law is changing, Mitch Kowalski presents a theory that the “greatest innovations in legal service delivery” are coming from small law firms.

MT+Co. is mentioned in his article:

Jim Titerle and Rob Miller left McCarthy Tétrault LLP in Vancouver to form Miller Titerle. Both believed that the profession needed change, and both wanted to be part of that change. They created a firm that is much more inclusive regarding decision-making. They focus on partnering with their clients. They seek out people with the same philosophy toward clients and the practice of law. “We continually question why we are doing what we are doing. And if the answer is solely ‘money,’ we know we’ve gone down the wrong path,” Mr. Titerle says. The firm is so focussed on attracting the right people that they even offer an exit bonus to lawyers and staff who decide the firm is not right for them. “Better to encourage the wrong people to leave than to entice them to stay,” Mr. Titerle says.
