Best Lawyers in Canada recognizes 44 WeirFoulds lawyers in 2021 edition

WeirFoulds congratulates 44 of our lawyers on being recognized in the 2021 edition of Best Lawyers in Canada. We have proudly earned 69 rankings in 22 specialty areas – a significant increase from the 2020 edition. This year seven of our lawyers have been listed for the first time and eight lawyers celebrate their 15th year of recognition in the Directory.

Additionally, we are thrilled to announce that Christopher Tzekas, Counsel, has been recognized as a Toronto “Lawyer of the Year” for a second time for his work in expropriation law. Chris also received this recognition in 2018. This accolade is especially significant as Best Lawyers selects only a single lawyer in each practice area and region to receive this honour.

Best Lawyers has ranked legal practitioners and firms across multiple practice areas through exhaustive peer-review surveys of the legal community for more than 25 years. Those surveyed are asked to assess their peers on their legal ability, professionalism and integrity.

We are honoured that our clients and peers continue to take the time to express their satisfaction with the quality counsel, service and professionalism provided by WeirFoulds.
