Woodward White's Best Lawyers has designated Lawyers of the Year in high-profile legal specialties in large legal communities in Canada.
A single lawyer in each specialty in each community is being honoured as the Lawyer of the Year 2012. Torys is delighted to announce that Sheila R. Block has been named Lawyer of the Year 2012 in the category of Bet-the-Company Litigation.
Best Lawyers compiles its lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys, in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The current edition of Best Lawyers is based on more than 2.8 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.
The lawyers being honored as Lawyers of the Year received particularly high ratings in Best Lawyer's surveys by earning a high level of respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism and integrity.
