I think the issue is how much is being done in-house and how much is being done outside,” says Don McCarty, the managing partner of Lavery de Billy LLP, the top vote-getter in this year’s Canadian Lawyer top Quebec regional law firms survey. “When work is referred to private practice, it is often work that’s complicated, more specialized, or more bet-the-bank.
