Announcing the 2021 Lexpert Rising Stars

The winners of the annual Lexpert Rising Stars Awards: Leading Lawyers Under 40 have been announced.

More information about the Lexpert Rising Stars 2021 winners can be found here.

These awards honour leading lawyers under 40 from law firms, in-house departments, and other practices. Members of the legal profession were invited to nominate lawyers qualified in Canada who have made outstanding contributions in their careers thus far.

This year, we received an overwhelming response in our call to nominations — a testament to the legal profession’s commitment to celebrate and develop young talent. Many of the Rising Stars winners are at the top of their game, representing clients in deals and cases at a notably high level of complexity. We congratulate all winners for persevering in a difficult time and maintaining a level of excellence that has genuinely elevated them to the peak of their profession.

We like to thank our event partner Fasken, our gold sponsor KPMG Law and our supporting organizations, the Women General Counsel Canada and South Asian Bar Association of Toronto.

We would also like to thank the advisory panel for dedicating their time to selecting and awarding excellence.
