Bernice Bowley recognized as one of Benchmark's Top 25 Women in Canadian Litigation

Fillmore Riley LLP congratulates Bernice Bowley, a partner and the chair of the Litigation Department, for being recognized as one of the top 25 Women in Litigation in Canada. She is the only lawyer from Manitoba who has been recognized in the 2017 publication.

Benchmark Litigation reported in a media release that the publication’s extensive research process, which encompasses six months of investigation into the individual litigators’ professional activities as well as client feedback surveys and individual interviews, has culminated in the selection of the most distinguished women in the world of litigation.

“These women have earned their place amongst the leading female litigators by participating in some of the most impactful litigation matters in recent history as well as by earning the hard-won respect of their peers and clients,” said Michael Rafalowich, the managing editor of Benchmark Litigation. “Though they hail from widely different practice areas, they all share the distinction of being recognized as top players in their respective fields.”

Lawyers named to the 2017 publication were chosen through several phases of research: namely, the review of their recent case work, peer review in which we consider how attorneys at peer legal institutions might rank them, and a consideration of client feedback on their performances.

"Bernice is our counsel of choice," a client told Benchmark. "She has a wide range of experience and has the ability to adapt to the many different situations in which we become involved."
