Norton Rose Fulbright partners named as Top 25 Women Litigators in Canada

July 27, 2015


Norton Rose Fulbright is pleased to announce that Benchmark recognized three members of the Canadian litigation practice group in its Top 25 Women Litigators list for 2015.

The following honorees were acknowledged by province:


  • Mary Comeau (Calgary) — General commercial, International arbitration, Aboriginal, Energy, Resources


  • Linda Fuerst (Toronto) — General commercial, Securities


  • Sophie Melchers (Montreal) — General commercial, Securities

Mary practises in the area of dispute resolution, focusing on corporate-commercial and securities law, oil and gas, and electricity. Sophie practises mainly in the areas of commercial, corporate and securities litigation. Linda covers a broad range of commercial and professional liability matters, with a particular focus on securities litigation, class proceedings and regulatory issues.

Norton Rose Fulbright’s litigators have in-depth trial and appellate experience and regularly appear before all levels of  court in Canada, and before arbitrators and administrative tribunals. The depth of the team as well as its seamless integration across offices and impressive experience means that disputes are managed swiftly and efficiently from the early stages to resolution.

Benchmark Canada provides extensive coverage of the Canadian litigation market. The guide's results are the culmination of a four-month research period that enables researchers to conduct comprehensive  interviews with litigators and their clients. Recent casework handled by the firms and professional opinions on litigators practicing within their province or practice area(s) across the country are provided during this process. Additionally, individual litigators who were noted as having strength in a particular practice area – either exclusively or as a specialty component of their general practice – are also identified. The practice areas include intellectual property, insurance, securities, competition, insolvency, product liability, international arbitration, and the Canadian practices of energy law and aboriginal law.
