Benchmark Canada honours McCarthy Tétrault with three awards

Toronto, February 6, 2015 – McCarthy Tétrault is delighted to announce the firm and its partners were honoured in three categories at Benchmark Canada’s 2015 awards gala last night in Toronto. The awards recognize excellence in litigation across the country.

David Porter, partner in the Toronto office, accepted the firm’s award for Firm of the Year, National White Collar/Enforcement/Constitutional. This recognition reflects the innovative legal advice and solutions on which McCarthy Tétrault’s clients rely.

In addition, the firm’s litigators were celebrated with the following awards:

  • Darryl Cruz – Litigator of the Year, National Medical Defense/Health Law
  • Marie-Josée Hogue – Litigator of the Year, Québec

McCarthy Tétrault’s integrated litigation practice comprises more than 200 litigators across Canada. The firm’s litigators are experienced trial and appellate lawyers at all levels who have advised on cases across the spectrum — from complex litigation to insurance litigation and class actions. Sixty-three of the firm’s lawyers have been appointed judges of the superior courts, the courts of appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada.
