Canadian Law Awards to celebrate nation’s best law firms

The long-standing tradition of recognizing excellence among law firms established in Canadian Lawyer and Lexpert now continues through the Canadian Law Awards.

Among the 30 categories are those focusing on the achievements of law firms over the past year, including:

  • IP Boutique Law Firm of the Year
  • Litigation & Dispute Resolution Boutique Law Firm of the Year
  • Canadian Boutique Law Firm of the Year
  • Best Use of Technology in a Law Firm
  • Atlantic Canada Law Firm of the Year
  • Ontario Law Firm of the Year
  • Prairies Law Firm of the Year
  • Quebec Law Firm of the Year
  • Western Canada Law Firm of the Year
  • Litigator of the Year
  • Managing Partner of the Year

“I am honoured to participate in the first ever Canadian Law Awards,” said Philippe Johnson (Managing Partner, Davies), “and look forward to celebrating the very best in our profession from across the country together on the same stage.”

“I look forward to helping recognize the impressive contributions of Canada’s top legal talent and hope they inspire the next generation of leaders and thinkers,” said Marc Barbeau (Chair, Stikeman Elliott LLP).

“The Canadian Law Awards will celebrate our country’s best and brightest,” said Dale Lastman (Chair, Goodmans LLP). “I’m delighted to participate in recognizing the accomplishments of our profession.”

Nominations can be submitted for all categories here.

Finalists will be announced in Lexpert and Canadian Lawyer in March. Winners will be announced at the black-tie gala event in Toronto on May 7 – and will also receive extensive profile-raising media coverage across Lexpert and Canadian Lawyer.
