International law firm Dorsey & Whitney LLP announced today that three lawyers in the Firm’s Vancouver and Toronto offices were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in Canada® 2015. In addition, Jeffrey Peterson from the Firm’s Vancouver office has been named a Best Lawyers 2015 Lawyer of the Year.

Published annually by Best Lawyers, The Best Lawyers in Canada is one of the country’s most highly regarded legal directories, as inclusion is based on an exhaustive peer review survey and a thorough authentication process. Best Lawyers peer-reviewed listings are now published in almost 70 countries around the world and in the international legal community.

The “Lawyer of the Year” accolade is especially significant, as only a single lawyer in each practice area and region receives the honor. Lawyers are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages during peer assessments.

The lawyers listed in Best Lawyers do not decide in which legal specialties they are listed. They are included in specialties as a result of the votes they receive from their peers. The specialties listed are based on information from a variety of sources. For more information, visit the Best Lawyers website.

Listed below are the Dorsey lawyers named as Best Lawyers, the specialty in which they are named, the first year they were listed and their office location.
