Fillmore Riley honoured to be recognized as a top Manitoba law firm by Canadian Lawyer magazine

Canadian Lawyer ranked Fillmore Riley LLP as one of the top 5 Manitoba law firms.

In the March 2017 edition of the magazine, journalist Mallory Hendry described the recent merger shakeup of what constitutes a regional firm in the Prairies. Glen Peters, the Managing Partner of Fillmore Riley, said despite the challenges it might pose, it also creates some significant opportunities, calling the aftermath of the merger an exciting time for everybody.

Canadian Lawyer’s Survey Methodology

Canadian Lawyer asked lawyers, in-house counsel and clients from across Canada to vote on the top full-service regional firms in the Prairies. They were asked to rank their top 5 firms in both Manitoba and Saskatchewan from a preliminary list, with a chance to nominate a firm that was not included on the list. Respondents’ rankings were based on firms’ regional service coverage, client base, notable mandates, service excellence and legal expertise.

To be considered in the vote, firms were required to have at least one office based in the Prairies and offer a wide range of legal services. The final lists were determined through a points system, with the top 5 firms for Manitoba and the top 5 firms for Saskatchewan listed alphabetically.

Respondents said that Fillmore Riley provides “full service in more practice areas than other firms, ISO certification for better quality customer service, high volunteerism in legal profession [and an] innovative brand.” Another said that they “enjoy working with their lawyers. Very competent, very fair with cost, very professional.”
