Marks & Clerk is very proud to be celebrating 100 years in Canada!

4 January 2021

We could not have achieved this incredible milestone without the trust and support of our clients, many of whom have been with the firm for decades.  It has been our great pleasure and honor to serve companies from across Canada and around the world over the last century, and we look forward to continuing to support innovation, entrepreneurship and creativity for the next 100 years.

In 1921, our first Canadian office opened at 128 Wellington Street in Ottawa, our nation’s capital.  From humble beginnings, our Canadian team has grown to over 75 professionals and staff with offices in Ottawa and Toronto, who are part of a global network of 1,200 professionals and staff in 18 offices worldwide.

Professionals at Marks & Clerk have been and continue to be recognized as leaders in the profession by well-known industry publications, and we are proud of our firm’s many accomplishments.  We are also proud of our culture of equality, diversity and inclusion that is the backbone of our Canadian identity.  We thank everyone who has supported us over the past 100 years, and we will continue to work very hard to earn your trust. 

Marks & Clerk will be hosting virtual and, when permitted and safe, in person events throughout the year to commemorate this significant achievement in our firm’s history.  We sincerely hope that you will join us in celebrating our history in Canada.

From all of us here at Marks & Clerk, thank you!
