Thanks to our clients, Blakes was ranked for the second time as having the leading law firm brand in Acritas’ Canadian Law Firm Index 2016 (we previously landed in the top spot in 2014). Blakes also was named Canada Law Firm of the Year for the eighth consecutive year in the Who’s Who Legal Awards 2016. In 2015, we were named one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers by Mediacorp Canada Inc. for the fifth time. We were also the top-ranked Canadian firm once again in Chambers Global: The World’s Leading Lawyers for Business and selected as one of the most innovative law firms in the BTI Brand Elite. Many of our lawyers are also recognized as leaders in their respective fields, evidenced by the fact that they are continually recommended in The Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory, Canada’s leading guide to lawyers, in almost every category of law.
