Thompson Dorfman Sweatman LLP (TDS) has been recognized as the Gold Winner for Prairies Law Firm of the Year at the Lexpert 2022 Canadian Law Awards for the third year in a row.
The Canadian Law Awards recognize the nation's leading law firms, teams, individuals, deals or cases over the past year. This year's awards gala to announce the highly anticipated winners was held in Toronto at the Arcadian Court on May 19, 2022, and was hosted by award-winning CBC news anchor Suhana Meharchand. Firms are nominated by hundreds of legal professionals and judged on their legal work's quantity, quality, importance, and innovativeness. In addition, outstanding excellence awardees, including local and international law firms, lawyers and in-house legal teams, were reviewed by an esteemed independent judging panel to determine the winner in each of the 20-plus categories.
"We are truly prairie strong, with a legal bench strength of 110 lawyers that reaches across 11 offices in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. We are honoured to be selected by our clients and peers as a leader in the Prairies for the third year in a row. Our dedicated, diverse group of lawyers, paralegals, assistants, staff and students continue to work hard on behalf of all our clients," said Keith LaBossiere, Q.C., CEO and Managing Partner, Thompson Dorfman Sweatman.
