Katherine is being recognized for her work as a leading Indigenous rights lawyer and is described as “a passionate advocate for the assertion of Indigenous and treaty rights, the duty to consult and child welfare matters.” She is featured in the Human Rights, Advocacy and Criminal Law category.

22,0000 individuals took part in the voting process this year to determine members of this exclusive list. Lawyers who are selected often contribute to the most nationally significant and strategic legal questions, cases, deals and disputes. Winners are selected across five different categories from hundreds of nominees.

Foglers is pleased to announce that the 41 lawyers were selected by their peers for inclusion in the 2024 edition of the Best Lawyers in Canada and Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch.

Best Lawyers compiles its lists of outstanding lawyers by conducting peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers.

We are thrilled to announce that Fogler, Rubinoff LLP has been voted as one of the top three law firms by Canadian Lawyer Magazine in their annual ranking of leading Ontario Regional Firms.

Canadian Lawyer Magazine surveyed lawyers, in-house counsel and clients from across Canada to nominate firms worthy of being ranked, and then created an open survey from that list which was distributed throughout the publication’s channels. Voters were asked to make their choices based on each firm’s “regional service coverage, client base, notable mandates, service excellence and legal expertise.”

Thank you to our peers, colleagues and clients for once again recognizing us with this honour, and congratulations to all of the firms ranked in the survey this year.
