Torys' “juggernaut of a commercial litigation practice has strong bench strength and extremely capable advocates,” according to sources surveyed by Chambers.

  • “You can't go wrong with” Sheila Block, who is considered to be “one of the top litigators in Canada by anyone's standards.” One commentator summed her up in a Chambers survey as follows: “She can be as tough as hell, is hard-nosed and incisive, a wonderful tactician and tremendously focused.”
  • “Cerebral, articulate and smart” John Laskin is “a man of considerable class. When he walks into a courtroom, everyone concerned is going to listen.” He came in for further praise for the way in which “he conveys via his happy style of delivery arguments that rest on great substance.”
  • Patricia Jackson was recommended for her class action, accountancy disputes and defamation work.
  • “Talented advocate” James C. Tory is known for his work in the corporate and securities fields.
