Toronto, February 19, 2016 – McCarthy Tétrault is delighted to announce the firm and its partners were honoured in four categories at Benchmark Canada’s 2016 awards gala last night in Toronto. The awards recognize excellence in litigation across the country.
The firm was awarded one of the Impact Case of the Year Awards for Charlton v.

- Darryl Cruz – Litigator of the Year, National Medical Defense/Health Law

Sixty-seven of the firm’s lawyers have been appointed judges of the superior courts, the courts of appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada.
