Torys recognized by Best Lawyers in Canada as Law Firm of the Year in energy law

August 27, 2021

We are proud to announce that we have been recognized as Best Lawyers in Canada’s 2022 Law Firm of the Year in energy law, demonstrating our deep understanding of the industry and support for our clients across Canada in energy project development, asset-based transactions and regulatory guidance.

In addition, five Torys Toronto lawyers and two Torys Calgary lawyers have been selected as Lawyer of the Year based on their overall peer-feedback for their regional practices. With only one lawyer named for each field and location, this recognition is a testament to the exceptional knowledge and client services our leading lawyers provide.

The Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch list highlighted nine Torys Toronto lawyers and one Torys Montréal lawyer joining the ranks for the first time and cementing their growing practices.

This year, 113 of our lawyers across 40 practice areas have also received recognition in the 16th Edition of The Best Lawyers in Canada guide for their outstanding professional abilities.
