Canada's leading litigation practice grows to 20 partners with newest additions.

Lenczner Slaght, the Toronto-based law firm that focuses exclusively on litigation, is proud to welcome two exceptionally strong advocates to the partnership. Both articled at Lenczner Slaght and were mentored as associates by the firm's outstanding senior litigators, gaining unparalleled trial experience as they honed their advocacy skills. The two were recognized as being named among Canada's Best Lawyers by Best Lawyers in 2014 - based on annual peer ratings.
