Hundreds of nominations were received from firms and legal departments across the nation.
The Awards research team reviewed all nominations, applying its own knowledge and some third-party information, to identify the outstanding firms, teams, individuals, deals or cases in each category that receive an ‘’Excellence Award’’.
The second phase of the research process involves the ‘’Excellence Awards’’ nominations material being forwarded to the extensive independent judging panel for scoring against strict criteria.
Judges’ scores are aggregated to produce a single ‘Winner’ in each category, a process that is fully verified by the Official Ballot Accountants, PwC.
The Winners of each category will be announced during the Canadian Law Awards event on May 19, 2022.
