MLT Aikins is pleased to announce that Saskatoon partner Erin Bokshowan and Regina partner Josh Morrison have been named Lexpert Rising Stars: Leading Lawyers Under 40.
“I’m honoured to be named a Lexpert Rising Star,” Erin said. “I’ve had the good fortune of working with wonderful clients who have made my job so rewarding. I’m humbled by this recognition and look forward to continuing to contribute to our clients’ successes.”
Lexpert Rising Stars are selected by an advisory board of lawyers from across the country. Finalists are listed as Lawyers to Watch in a future edition of the Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory.
