Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP is proud to announce that the Firm’s Chair, Brock Gibson, has been recognized as one of the Top 25 Most Influential Lawyers of 2022 by Canadian Lawyer Magazine. Brock was awarded in the Business category.
People focus drives results
As Chair since 2009, Brock has played a key role in fostering the client-centric, collaborative national law firm that Blakes is today. His ability to drive results is rooted in his commitment to understanding the realities of his clients and colleagues. Naturally curious, he has identified and incorporated a range of commercial and practical approaches from various industries to enhance the Firm’s business-focused culture.
“Brock’s market vision and pragmatic, inclusive approach have helped our clients and people succeed as their industries evolve,” said Bryson Stokes, Managing Partner of Blakes. “We are delighted to see his influence recognized with this honour.”
Under Brock’s leadership, the Firm has pursued continually higher standards in client-driven service and rankings such as the Thomson Reuters Canada Law Firm Brand Index, which Blakes leads for the seventh consecutive year in 2022. Blakes has also been named a Best Diversity Employer 12 times during Brock’s term as Chair.
Fostering future success
Brock has positioned the Firm to keep building on its success under incoming Chair Geoff Belsher, whose term begins in 2023. Brock and Geoff have worked closely together for many years and will continue to do so to ensure a smooth leadership transition.
Congratulating all honourees
Blakes congratulates all of this year’s Top 25 Most Influential Lawyers for their outstanding contributions to the legal profession.
