​Blakes Lead in Litigation: Winner of Four Benchmark Canada Awards

March 7, 2019

We are pleased to announce that Blakes has been named Arbitration Firm of the Year in the Benchmark Canada Awards, based on our exceptional work throughout 2018. Blakes secured a total of 27 nominations — the most of any firm — by province, practice area and lawyer.

Researchers at Benchmark​ spend six months conducting extensive interviews with litigators and their clients to identify the leading litigators and firms. During these interviews, researchers examine recent law firm casework and ask individual litigators to offer their professional opinions on peers.

We are also proud to note that three lawyers won Litigator of the Year in their respective specialty areas:


  • Pam Huff, Insolvency
  • Joe McArthur, Arbitration
  • Gord McKee, Product Liability


Many of our lawyers and specialty litigation areas were finalists in a number of categories, highlighting the remarkable efforts of our litigation practice. Click here to see the full list.
