The Lenczner Slaght 25th Anniversary Party

Peter Griffin and Laura Robinson were quoted in Precedent Magazine's article Lenczner Slaght's 25th Anniversary Party on September 22, 2017. Peter and Laura spoke about the history and growth of the firm and its strong reputation as a "major force in the profession".


“At McCarthys, everybody was a lifer,” recalls Peter Griffin, one of the original defectors and the longtime managing partner of Lenczner Slaght Royce Smith Griffin LLP. “You didn’t leave. And you certainly didn’t leave en masse. So they weren’t happy, as you can imagine.”


“We left a big firm to try something different, to be the counter culture,” says Griffin. “I never thought we’d be where we are today, at 55 lawyers.”


[The firm is] now a major force in the profession.

“I’m always conscious of that,” says Laura Robinson, a third-year associate at the firm. “Every time I stand up in court, I know there’s an expectation that a lawyer from this firm will be excellent, prepared and fierce. I take that reputation seriously.”
