Best Lawyers in Canada recognizes 50 WeirFoulds lawyers in 2022 edition including the new Best Lawyers Ones to Watch category

WeirFoulds congratulates 45 of our lawyers on being recognized in the 2022 edition of Best Lawyers in Canada and five of our senior associates on being recognized in the Best Lawyers Ones to Watch category. This year we have proudly earned 78 rankings in 27 specialty areas – a significant increase from the 2021 edition. In the 2022 edition, seven of our lawyers have been listed for the first time in both the Best Lawyers and Best Lawyers Ones to Watch and 11 lawyers celebrate their 15th year of recognition in the Directory.

Additionally, we are thrilled to announce that this year, WeirFoulds has been named the 2022 “Law Firm of the Year” for expertise in Trusts and Estates. This award recognizes a single top firm for its work in a specific legal practice area (nationwide). The award recipient is chosen based on factors including lawyer ballot feedback, the firm’s significant matters submissions, the firm’s coverage and scope in this practice area, historical analysis of the firm’s “Lawyer of the Year” awards, and the firm’s reputation as an expert in this area.

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.
