Nomination Process 

The Lexpert® Rising Stars: Leading Lawyers Under 40 honours lawyers from law firms, in-house and alternative practices. We encourage lawyers to nominate other lawyers from firms, in-house and government with whom they have worked.

We are asking you to nominate lawyers (associates, partners, government and in-house counsel) to be considered by Lexpert. To qualify, lawyers must have been born no earlier than 1978. 

The criteria are set out on the nomination form, which can be found by clicking here. The deadline for nominations is July 13, 2018. Your involvement in this nomination process is appreciated.

Lexpert will select the finalists based on the criteria set out in the nomination form. The Lexpert Advisory Board will then vote on the winners. 

The winners will be notified of their selection before the celebratory event, which will be taking place at a gala dinner scheduled for Thursday, November 8, 2018, at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto.

The Lexpert Rising Stars: Leading Lawyers Under 40 will be featured in the November/December issue of Lexpert® magazine.
