Fillmore Riley is pleased to announce that we have been recognized as the Manitoba Litigation Firm of the Year by Benchmark Canada.

Benchmark Canada is a guide to Canada’s leading litigation firms and lawyers. The guide results are the culmination of a four-month research period that allows researchers to conduct extensive interviews with litigators and their client.

During these interviews, Benchmark Canada examines recent casework handled by the firms and asks sources to offer their professional opinions on litigators practising within their province or practice area(s) across the country.

“We are honoured to be recognized,” said Bernice Bowley, the chair of Litigation at Fillmore Riley LLP. “Due to our litigation’s team’s capacity, Fillmore Riley is retained for some of the most substantive and complex litigation in Manitoba.”
