The Federation of Ontario Law Associations has confirmed its participation as a partner in two key Canadian Lawyer special reports – Top Boutiques: Litigation, and 5-Star Legal Workplaces.

FOLA is an organization that represents the 46 Law Associations across Ontario and, through them their members. Together with associate member The Toronto Lawyers Association, the federation represents approximately 12,000 lawyers, most of who are in private practice in firms across the province. These lawyers are on the front lines of the justice system and see its triumphs and shortcomings every day.

The inaugural 5-Star Legal Workplaces special report will recognize firms with more than ten employees in the legal profession that excel as a legal employer of choice and a desirable place to work.

The litigation special report celebrates those in the legal work whose main practice area is litigation in its many forms.

Katie W. Robinette, the Executive Director of the association, says her organization “is proud to support both special reports.”

Regarding 5-Star Legal Workplaces, Robinette says FOLA encourages members to “nominate a firm that you think worthy of recognition.”

As for the special report on litigation, Robinette says “it’s important to recognize and celebrate the best in our profession and FOLA encourages lawyers in all parts of Canada to vote.”

For 5-Star Legal Workplaces, a survey form aimed at employers will be online Aug. 8 to 26. A survey aimed at employees will be online from Aug. 29 to Sept. 16. The special report release date is November 29, 2022.

The survey for the litigation special report will be online Aug. 8 to Sept. 2 and results will be made public December 13, 2022.
