Each year, Benchmark Litigation identifies select litigation firms and attorneys who have displayed the ability to consistently handle complex, high-stakes cases in multiple jurisdictions. Our firm is once again ranked as “Highly Recommended”, i.e. the highest category for litigation in Quebec. A number of distinctions are awarded by Benchmark, including Litigation Star and Future Star award. A distinction is also awarded for the Top 50 Trial Lawyers in Canada. Woods is proud to see 9 of its partners awarded the distinction of Litigation Star (Caroline Biron, Bogdan Catanu, Marie-Louise Delisle, Stephen Drymer, Sébastien Richemont, Richard Vachon and Sarah Woods), including 2 of its partners (James A. Woods and Patrick Ouellet) identified amongst the Top 50 Trial Lawyers in Canada. Only 6 of the Top 50 Trial Lawyers in Canada come from Quebec this year, and Woods is the only Quebec firm to align two of them. Congratulations also to Sylvain Vauclair who has distinguished himself for his practice in insolvency law.
