Woods ranked top tier once again for dispute resolution in the latest edition of Benchmark Litigation Canada Guide


Woods is proud to confirm its long-standing position as one of the highly recommended firms for litigation in Quebec in Benchmark Litigation, the leading legal directory solely focused on litigation. The 2022 edition, which is based on interviews with top industry professionals and a review of 2021 cases, lauds Woods’ accomplishments of “etching itself to this position while remaining the most unanimously revered in terms of collegiality” and describes Woods as “one of the strongest litigation groups of any firm in Quebec”.

This leading recognition becomes apparent at the individual level as well, since twelve lawyers, including long-time practitioners and newer generations partners, are honoured. Sylvain Rigaud who joined the firm in 2021 is now part of the team’s roaster of Litigation Star as well as Louis Seveno who transfers from Future Star to Litigation Star. Partners, Alex Dobrota and Eric Bédard, both 40 and under, still excel as up-and-coming lawyers in the Future Star category. In addition, Patrick Ouellet is once again listed in the coveted Canada’s Top 50 Trial Lawyers list.

These awards demonstrate the talent and expertise of the entire team, as well as the firm’s resilience and unwavering commitment to excellence.
