National Leader, Practices and People


One of only two law firms on the Canada’s Top 100 Employers list, McCarthy Tétrault was also recognized this year for its diversity program, specifically for improving gender diversity at senior levels.

“With the support of our CEO, we continue to work hard to develop and implement programs, practices, policies and initiatives that are among the very best offered by employers in Canada,” Boniferro says. “We still have work to do, but as a leading law firm, we believe this hard work is never done.”

Boniferro joined the firm in 1996 and is still a practising labour and employment lawyer. As National Leader, Practices and People, his responsibilities include overseeing all practice groups, business planning, recruiting, talent management/ development, professional development and training, partnership admissions, compensation and all personnel matters.
