Canadian Law Awards Celebrates Lenczner Slaght’s Litigation Excellence

Following extensive research and assessment by industry leaders across Canada, this year’s Canadian Law Awards honoured Lenczner Slaght in two categories. 

For the fourth year in a row, Lenczner Slaght was proud to receive the award for Litigation & Dispute Resolution Boutique Law Firm of the Year.

In addition to the firm’s recognition, our Managing Partner, Monique Jilesen, was named Litigator of the Year.

Monique is a formidable advocate and one of the top litigation lawyers of her generation in Canada. She is Lenczner Slaght’s newly appointed Managing Partner and co-leader of the firm’s Commercial Litigation practice group. A fearless litigator, clients trust Monique to take on their toughest and most notable, high-profile cases. She knows what it takes to win and works tirelessly to advance her clients’ interests in the pursuit of justice. Monique’s cases throughout 2022 were a particularly noteworthy example of her work. Highlights include successfully securing an unprecedented Mareva order freezing up to $20 million of assets and cryptocurrency of Freedom Convoy leaders in Li v Barber and acting as counsel to the Ukrainian World Congress in an application for judicial review of Canada's decision to allow the delivery of turbines to Germany for use by a sanctioned Russian company.

Congratulations to Monique on her well-deserved recognition and to all the members of our firm who contributed to our success in the past year!
