Excitement grows as Lexpert Rising Stars returns to the stage celebrating leading lawyers under 40

Emerging leaders “deserve recognition for the many ways in which they are shaping the future of the legal profession in Canada,” says Bryson Stokes, managing partner at Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP (Blakes), a silver-level sponsor of Lexpert’s Rising Stars for 2022 event.

“Blakes is proud to celebrate these individuals and help showcase their diverse contributions,” says Stokes, referring to the annual event, which returns to a physical stage this year to celebrate lawyers 40 and under who have made outstanding contributions in their careers thus far.

Winners will be revealed live at the awards gala on November 22, 2022, at Toronto's Liberty Grand venue. The event will honour young Canadian lawyers from law firms, in-house departments, and organizations.

Earlier this year, members of the legal profession in Canada were invited to nominate qualified lawyers who have made outstanding contributions in the early part of their career. The deadline for nominations was July 8.

Lexpert’s advisory panel, comprised of esteemed leaders and experts within the legal profession, is now combing through the nominations to pick the winners based on the relevant criteria.

Also, as part of the event, attendees will hear from Arisa Cox, host and executive producer of Big Brother Canada. 

Dress is formal (tuxedo/business suit/long gown/cocktail dress) for the event, which includes complimentary parking, cocktail reception, dinner banquet and post-party celebration.

Tables (standard and VIP) and individual seats for the event can be booked through the Rising Stars 2022  registration stage.
