Five firms share top ranking on Chambers' Global 2011 list for leading firms in the corporate and M&A category [including] Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP [a national firm].

The reasons for firms' inclusion vary.


Osler has strength across a range of industries. Sources call it an "outstanding firm" whose lawyers "give exceptional service."

Eleven lawyers from the firm make the leading individuals list: Brian Levitt (Senior Statesman), Clay Horner (Band 1), Dale Ponder (Band 3), Jean Fraser (Band 3), Mark Trachuk (Band 3), Robert Desbarats (Band 3), Donald Ross (Band 4), Douglas Marshall (Band 4), Christopher Portner (Band 5), Robert Yalden (Band 5), and Douglas Bryce (Band 5).
