Most Trusted Legal Brand: Blakes Tops Canadian Firms for Seventh Straight Year

March 23, 2022

Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP (Blakes or the Firm) has been named Canada’s leading law firm brand for the seventh consecutive year in the Thomson Reuters Canada Law Firm Brand Index 2022. This is the eighth time Blakes has earned the top spot since the Canadian index was introduced in 2012. 

The data-driven recognition draws on feedback from 323 senior corporate leaders from Canada and around the globe. Summarizing the reasons that Blakes remains the law firm of choice for the survey’s respondents, Thomson Reuters reports: 

[The] staying power [of Blakes] is fueled by building deep relationships with its clients to earn it the distinction of the Canadian legal market’s most favored law firm. The firm also combines this favorability with a deep understanding of clients’ businesses, which helps position the firm for handling clients’ most complex work from top-level litigation to top-level M&A deals.

“We are grateful that hundreds of leaders across industries and markets continue to name Blakes their most trusted advisors,” said Blakes Chair Brock Gibson.  

“We are also proud of our teams for consistently anticipating our clients’ needs and delivering innovative solutions to their most complex and sensitive challenges,” added Firm Managing Partner Bryson Stokes.
