WeirFoulds congratulates the winners of the 2019 Canadian General Counsel Awards

WeirFoulds congratulates all of the nominees and winners at the 2019 Canadian General Counsel Awards (CGCA).

The firm is a proud sponsor of the Mid-Market Excellence category at this annual event and applaud all those who were recognized for excellence in their profession and dedication to the legal and business community at large.

We are especially pleased to congratulate our colleague Jennifer Suess, Senior Vice President, General Counsel & Corporate Secretary, RioCan Real Estate Investment Trust, who won the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Award. Jennifer is highly regarded for her commitment to the community, leadership and impressive ability to see through complex projects.

WeirFoulds has long supported the CGCA’s and the Mid-Market Excellence category as it is important to recognize that the scope of responsibilities of the General Counsel role continues to grow and that the expertise required to successfully perform the role continues to expand.

The CGCA’s are hosted by ZSA Legal Recruitment and the National Post to celebrate the accomplishments of leading in-house counsel and members of the Canadian private bar. The awards ceremony took place on June 10, 2019 in Toronto.

WeirFoulds is proud of the successes of our clients and alumni.
