Best Lawyers in Canada© administers a list of top lawyers in different practice areas, compiled based on peer-review evaluations. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honour. Burchells is proud to have seven of us recognized in the 2018 edition as being among Canada’s best: D. Bruce Clarke, QC, Wayne Howatt, Kelly Greenwood, Stuart C.B. Gilby, David Hutt, Cheryl Canning and Naiomi W. Metallic.
Bruce, Stuart and Naiomi continue making our Aboriginal and Indigenous Law practice group among the most robust such practices in the country. Wayne Howatt and David Hutt were recognized in commercial leasing law, with David singled out as 2018 "Lawyer of the Year." Cheryl Canning was again recognized as a 'best lawyer' and leader in the insurance law field. And Kelly Greenwood was recognized for real estate law.
Burchells congratulates not just these lawyers but all our colleagues singled-out in this year's listing.
