: Commitment to Excellence

At Stewart McKelvey, our articling program is our recruitment program. We hire lawyers who have the potential to be partners. We recruit people who are bright and hardworking, and who possess high energy levels, diverse interests and varied experiences. Articling begins a process of learning and professional development that spans a legal career, and that career could be with our firm. Stewart McKelvey is committed to providing the highest quality of legal services, earning our clients’ trust and striving to exceed their needs. Our aim is to understand the business and issues of our clients so that we can provide them with the best, most cost-effective, solutions. We invest in our people, our technology and our business/community relationships to ensure the continued delivery of quality service that our clients have come to expect.

We proudly celebrate over twenty years of innovative leadership as Atlantic Canada’s first and largest regional law firm. With a distinguished heritage reaching back to Canada's Confederation, our firm has established an international reputation for generating results. With more than 220 lawyers in six locations in Atlantic Canada, we have grown to become one of the 20 largest law firms in Canada.

Our commitment to excellence is enhanced by our understanding of the Atlantic Canadian centres in which we are located, their history, their traditions and their values, as well as the needs of our clients. Because we are a full-service firm covering a broad range of legal expertise, our program helps articled clerks and summer students gain experience in many different areas of the law.

We welcome diversity. Articled clerks and summer students are encouraged to explore a range of professional and community activities. It is the variety of backgrounds and combined knowledge of our lawyers that makes Stewart McKelvey distinct. Our lawyers are mentors, leaders and supporters of our communities.
