Lang Michener LLP was a full-service national law firm of over 200 professionals with offices in Toronto, Vancouver, Ottawa and Hong Kong. On January 1, 2011 Lang Michener LLP and McMillan LLP combined to become one national business law firm, with offices in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Hong Kong. The firm works under the name of McMillan LLP.
The firm provided a complete range of legal services to Canadian and multinational corporations. And by maintaining close working relationships with highly qualified lawyers in the United States, China and throughout the world, the firm provides its clients with a global reach.
Lang Michener dated back to 1926 in Toronto, Ontario where Rhodes Scholar Roland Michener and Osgoode Hall graduate Daniel Lang formed Lang & Michener. That same year, in Vancouver, British Columbia, the firm of Lawrence & Shaw was formed by partners James Lyle Lawrence and Alistair Shaw. These two firms merged in 1989 becoming Lang Michener Lawrence & Shaw. Today the firm is known simply as Lang Michener LLP.
The first Lang & Michener office was in the Canadian National Building at 347 Bay Street. It was one of the first "Bay Street" law firms in Canada.
The firm played a leading role in Canada's political and legal landscape. Founding partner, Roland Michener was appointed Speaker of the House of Commons by Prime Minister John Diefenbaker and later Governor General of Canada by Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson. Daniel Aiken Lang, son of firm founder Daniel Webster Lang, was appointed to the Canadian Senate also by Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson. The Right Honourable Jean Chrétien practiced with Lang Michener from 1986–1990, and Michel Bastarache, of the Ottawa office, was appointed a Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada in 1997.
