AUGUSTA, Ga., August 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Best Lawyers® announces the release of the 2023 editions of The Best Lawyers in Canada™ and Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch in Canada™ recognizing the professional achievements of the country’s best legal talent, selected by their peers through Best Lawyers’ bespoke voting process.
“We are pleased to present Canada’s 2023 Recognitions and congratulate the exceptionally talented attorneys who were recognized,” said Phillip Greer, CEO of Best Lawyers. “We expanded our Best Lawyers awards to Canada 16 years ago, and last year we continued our mission to provide reliable and unbiased resources to identify the best legal talent with our ‘Ones to Watch’ awards. We are honored to continue our globally respected pure peer review methodology for attorneys at all levels of their careers through these recognitions.”
Best Lawyers believes that the quality of our survey is directly related to the caliber of voters, so only attorneys previously recognized by Best Lawyers were invited to screen their voters for the 2023 recognitions. Best Lawyers analyzed more than 1.6 million reviews, resulting in recognition from just 5.2% of lawyers in Canada.
The 17thth output from The best lawyers in Canada also includes “Law Firm of the Year” awards. These firm-wide awards are specific to a country and practice area and are measured by attorney feedback and case matters, as well as the firm’s size, scope and coverage. 34 “Law Firm of the Year” awards were presented to 29 law firms. Firms that have won multiple Law Firm of the Year awards include Blake, Cassels & Graydon, Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg, McCarthy Tétrault, Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt and Stockwoods.
Another special award featured in this press release is the Lawyer of the Year Awards. This coveted award is presented to only one attorney per practice area in each region with the highest overall feedback from their peers. Only the top 0.3% of lawyers earned this exceptional award in the 2023 edition.
Using the same transparent methodology and survey process that has made Best Lawyers the gold standard for legal rankings worldwide, Best Lawyers honors attorneys earlier in their careers through the Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch in Canada awards. In the third edition of Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch in Canada, Less than 800 attorneys were selected by their peers to be inducted and commended for their outstanding legal talent.
