Recognition August 5, 2016

Norton Rose Fulbright is pleased to announce that Benchmark Litigation recognized Mary E. Comeau, Senior Partner, Calgary, Linda Fuerst, Senior Partner, Toronto and Sophie Melchers, Partner, Montreal, in its Top 25 Women Litigators list for 2016.

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.
