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 10 of its lawyers recognized in the 2019 edition as being among Canada’s best: D. Bruce Clarke, Q.C., Stuart Gilby, Jason Cooke, Naiomi Metallic, Wayne Howatt, David Hutt, David Cameron, Cheryl Canning, Q.C., Kevin Quigley, and Kelly Greenwood.
Bruce, Stuart, Jason and Naiomi were named among the country’s best lawyers in Aboriginal Law, with Bruce receiving recognition as 2019 “Lawyer of the Year” in this area. Wayne Howatt and David Hutt were once again recognized in Commercial Leasing Law. The firm’s Insurance Law practice continues to garner recognition, with Cheryl Canning, Q.C., Kevin Quigley and David Cameron all named among the best lawyers in that area (in addition, Cheryl and Kevin were named among the best in Personal Injury Litigation). For her part, Kelly Greenwood was recognized both in Real Estate Law and in Trust & Estate Law.
Burchells congratulates not just these lawyers but all our colleagues honoured in this year's listing.
