WeirFoulds is pleased to announce that 27 of our lawyers have been listed in the 2016 edition of Best Lawyers® in Canada.

Several WeirFoulds lawyers have been consistently recognized by Best Lawyers® in Canada since the first Canadian directory was published in 2006, often in more than one area. 

We also congratulate Glenn Ackerley on being recognized as Toronto "Lawyer of the Year" in Construction Law. With only a single lawyer in each practice area and region receiving the honour, this accolade is especially significant.
