Torkin Manes lawyers featured in The Best Lawyers in Canada 2024 and Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch (Canada) 2024

Torkin Manes is pleased to announce that 37 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 partners, Daniel S. Melamed and Sidney H. Troister, KC, designated Lawyer of the Year in each of their specific areas of practice. Additionally, four Torkin Manes lawyers have been selected by their peers for inclusion in the third Canadian edition of Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch, published concurrently with the directory’s release.

More than half of our partners were recognized for the quality of their advice in one or more of 25 different practice areas, collectively earning a total of 55 individual practice area rankings. These results, which are based on an extensive peer-review survey, reinforce the breadth of expertise of our leading lawyers and our prominence as a full-service law firm.

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