Lenczner Slaght Recognized in Chambers Canada 2018

Canada’s leading litigation firm and its expert lawyers are ranked once again by Chambers & Partners for their exceptional litigation work.

The recently published 2018 Chambers Canada Guide recognized Lenczner Slaght’s expertise and knowledge in the following areas:

  • Dispute Resolution: Class Actions (Defence) (Nationwide – Canada)
  • Healthcare (Nationwide – Canada)
  • Litigation: General Commercial (Nationwide – Canada)
  • Litigation: General Commercial (Ontario)

The Chambers rankings are the culmination of extensive research and interviews with firm clients and legal professionals. The guide praised the firm particularly for its Band 1 ranking in Litigation: General Commercial (Ontario) with commentators describing the firm as a "powerhouse" for litigation in Ontario and agreeing on its position "at the top of the market."

Quoting a client interviewed for the directory, the experienced Lenczner Slaght team is regarded as: "very knowledgeable; they always seem to be one step ahead. They are very good with strategy, understanding the judges and the way the system works."

In addition to the firm's rankings, seven Lenczner Slaght lawyers were also recognized for their expertise:

  • Andrew Skodyn – Intellectual Property: Litigation (Nationwide – Canada)
  • Tom Curry – Dispute Resolution: Class Action (Defence) (Nationwide – Canada); Healthcare (Nationwide – Canada); Litigation: General Commercial (Ontario)
  • Peter Griffin – Dispute Resolution: Class Action (Defence) (Nationwide – Canada); Litigation: General Commercial (Ontario)
  • Glenn Smith – Insurance: Dispute Resolution (Nationwide – Canada)
  • Ronald G. Slaght – Litigation: General Commercial (Ontario)
  • Alan J. Lenczner – Litigation: General Commercial (Ontario)
  • Ian Binnie – Dispute Resolution: Most in Demand Arbitrators (Nationwide – Canada)

One client notes: "[Lenczner Slaght lawyers] are top-notch litigators, from the most senior to the most junior. They have a reputation for excellence, and therefore attract excellence in the students and associates they hire."

Lenczner Slaght was also acknowledged in Chambers Global 2017, earlier this year, for the 15th consecutive year in the areas of Dispute Resolution, Dispute Resolution: Class Action (Defence) and Healthcare.
