The Canadian General Counsel Awards is the country's only national programme designed exclusively to recognize excellence within the In-House Counsel community. This year, The National Post and ZSA Legal Recruitment are celebrating the 11th Anniversary of the Canadian General Counsel Awards on June 1, 2015 at the Fairmont Royal York in Toronto.

Marguerite Ethier was appointed to serve on the Advisory Board and will be involved in the selection process. In selecting the Canadian General Counsel of the Year, the Board considers excellence, the ability to deal with complexity across jurisdictions and, a sure-handedness in dealing with whatever challenges they face. The Board will heavily consider the role of each candidate within their respective company's overall health and well-being.

"I am beyond delighted to join the Advisory Board," explained Marguerite Ethier.  "Today's economic environment has driven the broadening demands behind the role of corporate counsel to serve as a crucial advisor to senior management guiding the business along an ethical and legally compliant path as well as advising increasingly on risk and business strategy.  Their professionalism and blend of legal and business savviness is inspiring and I look forward to learning the stories of success behind this year's nominees."
