Cox & Palmer’s List of the Best

August 26, 2021

We are pleased to announce that The Best LawyersTM in Canada 2022 listings for Cox & Palmer include 84 lawyers’ recognitions.  Initially published in 1983, Best Lawyers® is a guide to legal excellence, recognizing leading lawyers who have been selected through a peer-review process.

The firm also has 16 “Lawyer of the Year” acknowledgements for 2022. This recognition, given to lawyers who received the highest overall peer-feedback, is bestowed upon one lawyer from each practice area, in each geographic region.

Notably, Cox & Palmer has been recognized by the publication as the 2022 Law Firm of the Year for Insurance Law. Law Firm of the Year awards recognize the single top firm for its work in a particular practice area in Canada.  The awards are based on a variety of criteria, including feedback from lawyer ballots, the overall number of lawyers recognized as Best Lawyers for the firm and for the practice area, the firm’s geographic reach, past Lawyer of the Year awards track record, and the firm’s overall scope and areas of expertise.

“It is an honour for our firm to accept this national award, which reflects the leadership, dedication, and integrity of our insurance lawyers in our offices across the Atlantic Provinces says CEO, George Cooper, QC. “We are ecstatic that so many of our lawyers have been highlighted in their practice areas, or as a “Lawyer of the Year” for their specialty area, in the 2022 edition of The Best LawyersTM in Canada.”.
