Macleod Dixon LLP
Since first opening our doors in Calgary in 1912, Macleod Dixon has been an integral part of the Canadian business community. Our professionals are known for the depth of their business savvy and the strength and diversity of their legal expertise. Our commitment to achieving the best results for our clients has earned us a reputation as a "law firm of choice".

While our roots are uniquely Canadian, our reach has become increasingly international. As our clients have expanded their business operations, Macleod Dixon has also expanded its geographical horizons, establishing international offices and strengthening and diversifying our service offerings in such key areas as energy and emerging markets. Today, our ability to serve clients via a closely linked network of international offices, as well as our commitment to excellence, and the depth and breadth of our legal "know-how" form the hallmark of the Macleod Dixon Advantage.

Our 100th anniversary is just around the corner and we've begun collecting the stories of the people and events that have shaped our past - and continue to inspire our future. Stories that chronicle our firm’s journey from a small office of four partners in 1912, through to the present day and the more than 250 legal professionals in our offices in Calgary, Toronto, Caracas, Moscow, Almaty, Atyrau, and Rio de Janeiro.

It’s the story of our founding fathers and the pivotal role they played in shaping the legal landscape of Alberta. It’s about how we got our reputation as experts in the oil and gas industry, and how this expertise served as a catalyst for expanding our firm’s international presence in the resource capitals of the world. It’s also the story of how the business advice of Macleod Dixon lawyers continues to be a sought after commodity in executive offices and boardrooms across Calgary - and around the globe.

And, our narrative would not be complete if we didn’t talk about the people behind our success; legal icons like Jack Marshall QC, previous Chairman of Macleod Dixon, and trailblazers like Chrysten Perry, the first female lawyer to head a major oil and gas practice group in Canada. There is no question that the relationship between law firms and their corporate clients has undergone a great deal of change over the past few years.

Executives and in-house counsel are regularly using formal Requests for Proposals to help them select their legal counsel.

Businesses expect their law firm to commit to providing services efficiently, and believe that their law firm should be rewarded when services are provided cost effectively and penalized when they are not.

Our clients want to be involved in the files being handled by outside counsel and are requesting access to project coordinators, file information and status reports. And they are asking for value-added services.

Macleod Dixon is a leader in establishing partnership relationships with corporations. We would be happy to discuss:
* Communication Tools 
* Alternative Pricing Strategies 
* Reduction and Containment of Costs
