For 30 years, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded - by the profession and the public - as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Six years ago, they began peer reviews of lawyers in Canada as well. The 2012 Best Lawyers in Canada, the 6th edition, is based on a rigorous national survey involving more than 373,000 detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers. Because Best Lawyer®s is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which lawyers cast votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers® is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyer®s “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
It is important to note that the lawyers listed in Best Lawyers have no say in deciding which practice areas they are included in. They are voted into practice areas entirely as a result of the votes they receive from their peers.
