The Franklin O. Leger Q.C. Award, which was coincidently named for a long-serving member of Cox & Palmer, recognizes outstanding service and dedication to the law society, contributions to the governance of the legal profession and excellence in the practice of law.

Wade has a broad-ranging litigation practice with an emphasis on advising insurers (particularly specialized risk insurers) and insureds, on insurance coverage and duty to defend issues. She also has expertise in administrative and privacy law.

In the past, Wade has earned the distinguished service award from New Brunswick branch of the Canadian Bar Association.

In a statement, Cox & Palmer said Wade’s career has been “characterized by integrity and adherence to the highest standards of our profession and we are very proud of her contributions and this accomplishment.”
