Monique Jilesen Named in Toronto Life’s Top 50 Most Influential of 2023

Toronto Life recognizes our Managing Partner as “Canada’s top litigator” in their prestigious Top 50 Most Influential of 2023 list, an exclusive ranking of the people who represent Toronto on a world stage and whose bravery, smarts and influence are changing the world.

Monique is a powerful advocate who is unafraid to take on tough, notable, and high-profile cases, even at a moment’s notice. Her cases in the last year were a particularly noteworthy example of her practice. Highlights include 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, and successfully securing an unprecedented Mareva order freezing up to $20 million of assets and cryptocurrency of Freedom Convoy leaders in Li v Barber. For her work, Monique was recognized in Toronto Life’s profile feature, Lexpert’s Top 10 Business Decisions, and at the 2023 Canadian Law Awards as Litigator of the Year.

Congratulations, Monique, on this extraordinary recognition!
