Best Lawyers has announced the 14th edition of The Best Lawyers in Canada.

According to its press release, Lawyers named to The Best Lawyers in Canada publication were recognized by their peers in the legal industry for their professional excellence in 75 practice areas.

In addition, Best Lawyers announced the 2020 “Lawyer of the Year” recipients. Lawyer of the Year honorees receive this award based on their extremely high overall feedback within specific practice areas and metropolitan regions.

“Best Lawyers was founded in 1981 with the purpose of recognizing extraordinary lawyers in private practice through an exhaustive peer-review process. Almost 40 years later, we are proud to continue to serve as the most reliable, unbiased guide to legal talent worldwide,” said Phil Greer, CEO of Best Lawyers.

The process begins when lawyers are nominated for consideration. They are divided by geographic region and practice area, and are evaluated by their peers on the basis of professional expertise. Those who receive high peer reviews undergo an additional verification process to make sure they are currently practicing and in good standing. Only then can these top lawyers be recognized by Best Lawyers. Search The Best Lawyers in Canada results by lawyer’s name, firm, region, and/or practice area by visiting here.
