Regional law firm earns highest ranking of prestigious award to date
Field Law is pleased to announce that 19 of our lawyers were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in Canada© 2014. They earned a total of 28 rankings in 18 distinct areas.

Best Lawyers, a respected peer review publication in the legal profession, is based on an exhaustive annual peer review survey.

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become a definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on a peer-review survey in which almost 3700 leading Canadian lawyers cast nearly 460,000 votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honour.
