2023 winners of Best Lawyers

AUGUSTA, Ga., Aug. 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Best Lawyers® announces the release of the 2023 editions of Best Lawyers in Canada™ and Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch in Canada™ which honor the professional achievements of the nation’s top legal talent who have been selected by their peers through Best Lawyers’ bespoke voting process.

“We are thrilled to present the 2023 Honors for Canada and congratulate the exceptionally talented lawyers being honored,” said Phillip Greer, CEO of Best Lawyers. “We expanded our Best Lawyers in Canada recognition 16 years ago, and last year we continued our mission to provide trusted, unbiased resources to identify the best talented legal professionals with our ‘Ones to Watch’ awards. We are privileged to continue our globally respected peer review methodology for lawyers at all career levels through these recognitions. »

Best Lawyers believes that the quality of our survey is directly related to the caliber of voters, so only lawyers previously recognized by Best Lawyers were asked to rate their voters for 2023 recognitions. Best Lawyers analyzed over 1.6 million reviews, resulting in the recognition of only 5.2% of lawyers in Canada.

The 17the edition of The best lawyers in Canada also includes “Law Firm of the Year” awards. These firm-wide awards are country- and practice-area specific, and are driven by lawyer commentary and cases, as well as firm size, scope and coverage. Thirty-four “law firm of the year” distinctions were awarded to 29 firms. Firms that have received multiple “Law Firm of the Year” awards include Blake, Cassels & Graydon, Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg, McCarthy Tétrault, Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt and Stockwoods.

Another specialty distinction presented in this press release is the “Lawyer of the Year” mention. This coveted honor is only awarded to one attorney per practice area in each region with the highest overall peer reviews. Only the top 0.3% of lawyers obtained this exceptional distinction during the 2023 edition.

By using the same transparent methodology and investigative process that has made Best Lawyers the benchmark for legal rankings in the world, Best Lawyers honors lawyers earlier in their career through the Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch in Canada price. In the third edition of Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch in Canada, less than 800 lawyers were selected by their peers for inclusion and commended for their exceptional legal talent.
