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.
