For the third time we produce Who’s Who Legal: Canada, featuring 964 practitioners, an addition of 66 new inclusions from our 2011 edition, from 199 different firms, across 32 distinct practice areas. Once again, the size and scope of the publication has grown to reflect the increasing prominence of certain areas of laws, such as commercial mediation. Canada’s resilient economic performance over the past year can be attributed to its strong links with the US, its largest trading partner, and an abundance of natural resources. Our research traces a steady annual expansion in the number of leading professionals in the directory, demonstrating a more highly sophisticated legal business environment than ever before.
