International law firm Dorsey & Whitney LLP announced today that five lawyers in the Firm’s Toronto and Vancouver offices were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in Canada® 2016.

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Best Lawyers lists are compiled based on an exhaustive peer-review evaluation. Over 79,000 leading attorneys globally are eligible to vote, and we have received more than 12 million votes to date on the legal abilities of other lawyers based on their specific practice areas around the world.

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

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