Two attorneys from Woods are listed as part of the top 50 trial lawyers in Canada by Benchmark for 2017. Each year, Benchmark Litigation identifies select litigation firms and attorneys who have displayed the ability to consistently handle complex, high-stakes cases in multiple jurisdictions. A number of distinctions are awarded by Benchmark, including the Litigation Star and Future Star award. A distinction is also awarded for the Top 50 Trial Lawyers in Canada. Only seven of the 50 top trial lawyers in Canada come from Québec this year, and two of them are from our firm. Congratulations to James A. Woods and Patrick Ouellet.
Congratulations also to Caroline Biron, Bogdan Catanu, Marie-Louise Delisle, Stephen Drymer, Sébastien Richemont, Christopher Richter, Richard Vachon, and Sarah Woods who were all awarded the distinction of Litigation Star. Finally, congratulations also to Sylvain Vauclair who has distinguished himself for his practice in insolvency law.
