Lawson Lundell named British Columbia Firm of the Year in Litigation by Benchmark Canada


Vancouver (Canada) – Lawson Lundell LLP is pleased to announce that it took home two awards and was a finalist in three other categories at Benchmark Canada’s second annual awards ceremony, held last night at the Intercontinental Hotel in Toronto. 

This year Lawson Lundell received the following awards:

  • Firm of the Year (Litigation) – British Columbia
  • Aboriginal Law Litigator of the Year – Keith Bergner

The Firm was also nominated for awards in the following categories:

  • Aboriginal Law Firm of the Year (Litigation)
  • Energy/Resource Firm of the Year (Litigation)
  • Energy/Resource Litigator of the Year – Chris Sanderson, QC

According to the guide, "Lawson Lundell is unique among British Columbia firms in that it is neither national nor a boutique but rather straddles a comfortable position as a regional powerhouse, addressing clients through its offices in Vancouver in British Columbia, Calgary in Alberta, and Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories."

Benchmark Canada is the only legal ranking publication to focus exclusively on litigation in Canada. The awards honour Canada’s leading litigators, law firms and in-house legal counsel. The nominees are sourced from both firm submissions and peer review. The shortlist and winners are the culmination of a four-month research period that involves extensive interviews with litigators and their clients.

Congratulations to the Litigation Group and Keith Bergner on these well-deserved recognitions.
