The Honourable Terrence McMahon returned to Field Law as Senior Counsel and member of the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Group after retiring from the Court of Queen's Bench of Alberta in 2012.

Prior to his appointment to the Court of Queen's Bench of Alberta in 1992, Terrence's practise was focused civil litigation, primarily in the field of construction, surety and commercial matters.
