McCarthy Tétrault LLP announced on Sept. 3 that it added Lucie Tedesco as senior counsel in its national financial services group.

Tedesco joined from the government sector, where she was most recently with the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada, serving as deputy commissioner from 2008 to 2013 and as commissioner from 2013 to 2019. She was also a director at the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada from September 2018 to August 2019.

With over 24 years’ experience in the financial services and regulatory environment, Tedesco has been part of several agencies and Crown corporations, such as the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation and Export Development Canada. She chaired the International Financial Consumer Organisation, an international organization of supervisory authorities responsible for financial consumer protection, the firm said in a statement.

“Lucie offers clients unique and deep expertise in the areas of financial regulation and market conduct,” said Marc MacMullin, co-head of McCarthys’ national financial services group. “She provides the strategic and proactive solutions clients need to stay on top of critical Canadian and international regulatory and market conduct developments, enabling them to focus on innovation, efficiencies and growth.”

Tedesco obtained her bachelor’s and LLB degrees from the University of Ottawa, and was admitted to the Ontario Bar in 1989, according to her profile on the firm’s website. She is also faculty member of the regulatory compliance and legal risk management for financial institutions program at Osgoode Hall Law School.
