The TDS Difference: Service and Relationship Focused with a Saskatchewan Presence

We understand our role as the local agent for a law firm outside of Manitoba or Saskatchewan. We know that being laser focused on service and responsiveness is critical to client satisfaction, including the referring law firm and their client. Because local agency work is very relationship based, the TDS team values and respects the role of the entire team at the referring law firm. As an extension of the referring firm, the TDS team collaborates directly with Partners, Associates, Articling Students, Paralegals, and Legal Assistants from law firms outside of Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

TDS has offices exclusively in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. In addition, several Manitoba-based lawyers have their Saskatchewan call. As the local agent for the Canadian Prairies, TDS offers the benefit of a one-stop-shop for both Manitoba and Saskatchewan agency work.
