August 22, 2017
Toronto, August 22, 2017 – In the 2018 edition of Best Lawyers in Canada, 10 of our lawyers were recognized as “Lawyer of the Year.” The recognition goes to those who received the highest overall feedback in Best Lawyers’ extensive annual peer-only survey – only one lawyer is identified for each practice area in the evaluated cities. This designation is a reflection of a lawyer’s reputation as a leader among their peers within the legal industry.
The following McCarthy Tétrault practitioners were named "Lawyer of the Year":
- Candace Pallone – Derivatives Law (Toronto)
- Charles Morgan – Technology Law (Montréal)
- David Lever – Energy Regulatory Law (Toronto)
- John C. Currie – Real Estate Law (Toronto)
- Matthew D. Peters – Technology Law (Vancouver)
- Michael Feder – Product Liability Law (Vancouver)
- Philippe Leclerc – Securities Law (Québec City)
- Richard Higa – Banking and Finance Law (Toronto)
- Richard O’Doherty – Banking and Finance Law (Montreal)
- Robin Mahood – Mergers and Acquisitions (Vancouver)
The firm was also recognized as “Law Firm of the Year” for both Corporate and Real Estate Law – this is the second consecutive year where the firm has been recognized for its Real Estate practice. This national award recognizes a single top firm for its work in a specific legal practice area, and is determined based on several factors including: lawyer ballot feedback, historical analysis of the firm’s “Lawyer of the Year” awards, and the firm’s overall scope and areas of expertise. First published in 2006, the 2018 edition of Best Lawyers in Canada also lists 126 of the firm lawyers, 263 times, across 52 practice areas.
