About Chambers Canada Guide
Chambers Canada recommends leading lawyers and a range of provincial, national and international law firms based across the country.

Chambers ranks both lawyers and law firms on the basis of rigorous independent research, taking place every year between the core months of January through May. During this period, a dedicated team conducts hundreds of in-depth interviews with clients, private practice lawyers and in-house counsel.

This year, Chambers Canada recognized seven partners across eight practice groups.
