Teresa Dufort is McMillan LLP’s new CEO

In Toronto, Teresa Dufort is McMillan LLP’s new CEO, and one of the few women to assume the top leadership role at a large Canadian law firm. Dufort takes the reins from Andrew Kent, who stepped down after 10 years as CEO during which he transformed the firm through three all-Canadian mergers. The new executive committee model replaces McMillan’s CEO/COO model. The other committee members are David Dunlop, Timothy Murphy and Stephen Wortley (who works from the Vancouver office as well as from Hong Kong). All four members continue their active practices at the firm.
