WeirFoulds is pleased to announce that Partner, Frank Walwyn, has been named one of the Top 25 Most Influential Lawyers in Canada for 2018 by Canadian Lawyer. Frank's highly successful corporate and commercial litigation practice extends beyond Canadian borders to Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, the British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Grenada and St. Kitts and Nevis, where he is also licensed to practice.

Given his international experience, Frank is consulted and appears as counsel on complex multi-jurisdictional litigation matters, many of which have led to important or precedent-setting judgments. His unique positioning also makes him a sought after speaker on legal topics in Canada, the US and the Caribbean.

Recognition for accomplishments is not new to Frank – he has repeatedly been named as one of Canada's top lawyers in the area of corporate and commercial litigation by Best Lawyers in Canada. Additionally, his contributions to the legal profession and community at large have secured awards and acknowledgements, including but not limited to: the Diamond Jubilee Medal presented by Command of Her Majesty the Queen; The Law Society of Canada's Lincoln Alexander Award and the Ontario Bar Association's Award for Distinguished Service.

Frank Walwyn is greatly deserving of this recognition. We congratulate him on this accomplishment and look forward to sharing Frank's many successes to come.
