Torkin Manes lawyers featured in The Best Lawyers in Canada 2022 and Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch (Canada) 2022

We are pleased to announce that 34 of our partners have been recognized as leaders in their respective fields in the latest edition of The Best Lawyers in Canada, with two of our lawyers named Lawyer of the Year in their respective areas of practice. Additionally, three Torkin Manes associates have been selected by their peers for inclusion in the inaugural Canadian edition of Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch, published concurrently with the directory’s release.

With nearly half of our partners recognized for the quality of their advice in one or more of 24 different practice areas, this result recognizes the breadth of expertise of our lawyers and our prominence as a full service mid-sized law firm. (Inclusion in the directory is based on the results of an extensive peer-review survey.)

Congratulations to all of our recognized lawyers on their appearances in these two publications!
