Real influence is about more than one person

Written by
Our August issue includes our most popular story of the year — the Top 25 Most Influential — where we take stock of the lawyers, judges and others in the legal profession who are having an impact. This is my first year overseeing the process from beginning to end — observing the reaction to last year’s list (when I first started at Canadian Lawyer), seeking nominations for this year, encouraging lawyers from across the country to vote, selecting the finalists and then deciding what to highlight about their impressive accomplishments.

Show me the (laundered) money

Written by
Our June issue of Canadian Lawyer has a money theme. We publish our annual Legal Fees Survey in this issue, which we hope will help lawyers and law firms better understand how their fees compare to their competition.
