Blaney McMurtry Ranked in Chambers High Net Worth Guide, 2020

We are proud to be ranked once again this year in the Chambers and Partners High Net Worth (HNW) Guide, 2020 Edition, in the following areas:

Practice Ranking:

Family/Matrimonial: High Net Worth – Canada: Sources said "Without question, the strength of the firm as it relates to my clients is the 'one-stop shopping' that is available for high net worth persons who are navigating a dispute in family law. Also, the strength of its family law department is the bench strength of the group - it is not a one-person show." The interviewee continued, “The team is top-notch...there is not a better group in Ontario, in my opinion”.

Blaneys' partner Judy Piafsky is recognized as a “Notable Practitioner” in the area of Family/Matrimonial: High Net Worth, with a source describing her as “extremely knowledgeable and has tremendous skill as a lawyer”. A source comments, "I only refer family law matters to Judy Piafsky. I have tried many other lawyers and firms and she has been consistently the best."
