Litigation strategies based on experience and creativity.

There’s no such thing as an effective stock approach to litigation. Its outside-of-the-box thinking that gets results, not textbook advice or off-the-shelf solutions. Your lawsuit is completely unique to you. Our approach is custom-tailored to you and your goals.

Whether an employment dispute, personal injury claim, divorce, or commercial dispute, our first goal is to fully understand your needs. Only then do we begin exploring your legal options, steering you through the minefield of our legal system. We exercise the same client-centered approach regardless of the size of the case. A recent CBC documentary series described our Litigation Group as amongst the best lawyers money can buy. We take some pride in those exaggerated accolades, but we prefer to be thought of as the ‘little engine that could’.

When conflict looms, you want the right team in your corner.

Our Litigation Group is renowned for its litigation persistence—this area of law is no place for half-measures. Though we never lose sight of the economic realities that must influence a tactical decision on conflict resolution, we are more than fair-weather counsel, and accept cases that are disproportionate to our size. We know our way around the court rooms of Nova Scotia, and ensure that our clients’ voices will be heard.

Mac, Mac & Mac has represented clients in some of the most high-profile cases the province has seen. We represented the vast majority of Nova Scotian women in one of the world’s largest class action lawsuits; we acted as lead counsel in the tragic consequences of the Westray Mine Disaster; we successfully completed one of the lengthiest and most controversial wrongful dismissal actions in recent Nova Scotia legal history; and our persistence in the worldwide pursuit of one of Canada’s most infamous deadbeat dads has similarly attracted international attention in legal circles.

Bruce MacIntosh leads our Litigation Group. He has been called a litigator’s litigator. He is one of less than two dozen Canadian lawyers invited to join the prestigious International Society of Barristers. With more than 40 years of litigation experience, Bruce understands the difference between dry legal knowledge and hard-earned legal judgment. He knows how the legal system works, its strengths and its weaknesses. No wonder his cases have repeatedly attracted provincial and national attention.
