MLT Aikins is honoured to be named Benchmark Canada’s Litigation Law Firm of the Year for both Saskatchewan and Manitoba. 2017 marks the fifth consecutive year we’ve received this award for Saskatchewan.
For these awards, the publication’s selection process involves a four-month research period, which includes interviews with litigators and their clients. Benchmark looks at the firm’s recent casework and asks external sources to weigh in with their professional opinions on litigators who practise in their province or expertise area.
Lawyer Shaunt Parthev accepted the awards on behalf of the law firm at the event on Thursday, February 23.
Additionally for 2017, 21 MLT Aikins lawyers have been recognized as “Litigation Stars” by Benchmark Canada, and Bob Leurer was named Saskachewan Litigator of the Year.
According to the publication, these individual litigators “were noted as having strength in a particular practice area – either exclusively or as a specialty component of their general practice. These practice areas include intellectual property, insurance, securities, competition, insolvency, product liability, international arbitration… energy law and aboriginal law.”
