2018 Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory now online

The 22nd annual edition of the Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory is now online. Check out which lawyers across Canada have been recommended by their peers in Surveys in their respective practice areas. There are three levels of recommendation: Most Frequently; Consistently; and Repeatedly.

The 2018 edition of the Directory identifies recommended practitioners in over 60 separate practice areas, as well as leading law firms in over 40 practice areas.

Participants in the Lexpert Surveys are prominent in their practice areas and professional organizations, and otherwise enjoying significant recognition from their colleagues.

The value attached to being a “Lexpert-ranked” lawyer is demonstrated by the high level of participation in the Lexpert Surveys.  In 2017, Lexpert made 15,203 requests for completed Surveys from lawyers at law firms, (and 7,257 additional requests were sent to in-house counsel). We received 12,233 completed Surveys from law firm practitioners representing a response rate of 80.46 per cent. (Our response rate from in-house counsel was 1.89 per cent).

This year, we have included “Lawyers to Watch” in their respective practice areas. These lawyers were Finalists or Winners in last year’s “Lexpert Rising Stars: Leading Lawyers Under 40” Awards program. Those who were already Lexpert-ranked in their practice area are shown as ranked, rather than as “Lawyers to Watch”.
