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. Abbott Laboratories, Ltd., in which McCarthy Tétrault successfully represented Abbott Laboratories in a precedent-setting decision related to certification of a prescription pharmaceutical class action, resulting in the complete dismissal of a certified class action. The case set an extremely important precedent in the field of product liability class-actions.

  • 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.
