The Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory uses peer surveys to identify a comprehensive list of Canada’s leading lawyers in over 60 practice areas. The Directory determines which counsel are considered the top lawyers in various practice areas, and targets lawyers who are regarded as leaders in their field, are considered preeminent in professional organizations, or those with substantial recognition by their colleagues.

The Lexpert list has been published since 1997.
