Lisa Ridgedale and John Forstrom Recognized by Best Lawyers

Hakemi & Ridgedale LLP joined MLT Aikins in December 2022.

We’re delighted to announce that Hakemi & Ridgedale co-founder, Lisa Ridgedale, has been named by Best Lawyers as a leader in Labour and Employment Law. John Forstrom, Associate Counsel with the firm, has also been named once again as a Best Lawyer for Natural Resources Law in Vancouver, a title he has held since 2009. Recognition in Best Lawyers is widely regarded by both clients and legal professionals as a significant honour, conferred on a lawyer by his or her peers.

Lisa and John are part of a dynamic, multi-faceted team who have broad experience and skill. With exceptional skills and insights, Lisa’s clients also benefit from her experience as a former prosecutor with the British Columbia Ministry of the Attorney General in Vancouver and later as senior enforcement counsel at the British Columbia Securities Commission. John has more than 30 years’ experience advising and representing a wide variety of clients, including individuals, small businesses, public and private corporations and their directors, financial institutions, industry associations, and regulatory bodies. He has represented his clients in proceedings before all levels of court in British Columbia, as well as in mediations, arbitrations, and before the BC Securities Commission and other administrative tribunals.

Congratulations to both!
