Nomination Process 

The Lexpert® Rising Stars: Leading Lawyers Under 40 hopes to honour lawyers from law firms, in-house and other practices. We encourage lawyers to nominate other lawyers from firms, in-house and government with whom they have worked.

Lexpert will select the finalists based on the criteria set out in the nomination form. The Lexpert Advisory Board will then vote on the winners. 

The winners will be notified of their selection before the celebratory event, which will be taking place at a gala dinner scheduled for Thursday, November 16, 2017, at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto.

The Lexpert Rising Stars: Leading Lawyers Under 40 will be featured in the November/December issue of Lexpert® magazine. We are asking you to recommend candidate lawyers (associates, partners, government and in-house counsel) to be considered by Lexpert. To qualify, lawyers must have been born no earlier than 1977. All practice areas within business law (e.g., corporate, litigation) are open for consideration.

We ask you to recommend and describe candidates according to the criteria listed on the nomination form, which can be found by clicking here. The deadline for nominations is July 14, 2017. Your involvement in this nomination process is appreciated.
