Filion Wakely Thorup Angeletti Ranked as Leading Firm by The Legal 500

Legal 500 CanadaThe prestigious Legal 500 ranking has just been released for Canada. The 2014 issue recommends Filion Wakely Thorup Angeletti LLP, L&E Global Canada partner, in the Labour and Employment practice area.

Roy C. Filion Q.C. –Filion Wakely’s senior partner– has been listed in the elite “Leading lawyers” category, ranking him among the most outstanding lawyers in Canada.

In addition to Roy Filion, the Legal 500 Canada 2014 editorial has recommended two other lawyers from Filion Wakely: James Knight and Mark Zega.

The editorial states:

“Roy Filion QC is highlighted as the ‘dean of the employment bar’ and clients particularly laud his experience in collective bargaining negotiations. […] James Knight is a ‘classy litigator’ and has a strong record in collective bargaining, particularly for clients in the manufacturing, entertainment, services and health sectors. Mark Zega is commended as a ‘sharp and responsive lawyer’ and recently represented Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board before the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal in a case brought by a school board supervisor that had been away from the workplace for almost ten years.”

This is the first year that Legal 500 has prepared a guide covering Labor & Employment in Canada. We are proud of being part of this first issue, which confirms again our partners’ commitement around the world.
