Seven Osler partners each honoured as “Lawyer of the Year” by Best Lawyers

We are excited to announce that the following seven Osler partners have each been named “Lawyer of the Year” in their specialty area by Best Lawyers.

  • Al Meghji – Toronto Tax “Lawyer of the Year”
  • Edward Vandenberg – Ottawa Securities “Lawyer of the Year”
  • Ian McSweeney – Toronto Employee Benefits “Lawyer of the Year”
  • Lorne Carson – Calgary Equipment Finance “Lawyer of the Year”
  • Richard Coleman – Toronto Technology “Lawyer of the Year”
  • Shahir Guindi – Montréal Information Technology “Lawyer of the Year”

These individuals have been selected for this distinction after having earned the highest number of votes, within their geographic legal market and specialty area, in the publisher’s exhaustive annual peer review surveys conducted earlier this year. Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honoured as the Lawyer of the Year, making this accolade particularly significant.
