Lenczner Slaght Ranked Among the Best

Almost half of the leading litigation firm’s lawyers are recognized in the Best Lawyers in Canada.

Lenczner Slaght is proud to announce that 23 of the firm’s 51 lawyers have been recognized in the Best Lawyers in Canada 2018 publication in multiple categories.

Paul-Erik Veel, Matthew B. Lerner and Sana Halwani all make their first appearance, while 12 of the firm’s lawyers have been ranked for five years, and six lawyers have been ranked since the inaugural edition in 2006.

In addition, we are delighted that Mark Veneziano is named “Lawyer of the Year” in Health Care Law, and Risa M. Kirshblum is named “Lawyer of the Year” in Medical Negligence. Both were recognized for having the highest overall peer-feedback in their practice areas in Toronto.
