Benchmark Litigation recognizes Bernice Bowley as one of the Top 100 Women in Litigation in Canada for 2022

Bernice Bowley is the only lawyer from Manitoba who has been recognized in Benchmark Litigation’s inaugural launch of the Top 100 Women in Litigation in Canada. 

This group was selected based on research conducted for the Benchmark Canada 2022 cycle, which ran from October 2021 to February 2022. 

Bernice is the chair of Litigation practice. She maintains a comprehensive commercial insurance litigation practice, including general insurance defence, professional errors and omissions, product liability, construction, subrogation and coverage.

Her recent work includes McLeod Estate v. Cole et al., 2021 MBQB 24 (CanLII). Bernice was part of a multi-firm legal team which acted as counsel to a lawyer and two real estate agents in defending an action brought against them by family members who alleged that their father was not competent to sell some land. The case was most recently heard by the Manitoba Court of Appeal in June and is awaiting a decision. 

Since 2013, Benchmark Litigation has recognized Fillmore Riley as a regional litigation powerhouse known for its depth of experience in insurance, trusts and estates, taxation and complex commercial litigation.
