13 Patterson Law Lawyers Recognized in 12th edition of The Best Lawyers™ in Canada

Every year, Best Lawyers in Canada conducts peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers on their legal ability, professionalism and integrity. Best Lawyers® then compiles an annual list of the lawyers who have been distinguished as leaders within their practice areas.

Best Lawyers lists have earned the respect of the profession, the media and the public, as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals anywhere. Lawyers are not permitted to pay any fee to participate in or be included on Best Lawyers lists. If the votes for a lawyer are positive enough for inclusion in Best Lawyers, that lawyer must maintain those votes in subsequent polls to remain on the list for each edition. We are particularly proud that two of our lawyers, Clarence Beckett, QC and Robert Purdy, QC have maintained their listings since Best Lawyer Canada’s inaugural edition in 2006.
