He has previously been named as one of the world’s “top 30” in the separate categories of capital markets, mergers and acquisitions and corporate governance in other recent editions of that series. He was also designated as one of ten “most highly regarded individuals” in each of these three categories in the current edition of Who’s Who Legal CanadaWho’s Who Legal’s global 2016 survey ranked him as the only Canadian on its list of the seven “most highly regarded” North American M&A lawyers, describing him as “one of the finest lawyers in the world” in this practice area.  Most recently, Who’s Who Legal recognized him as one of two Canadian “Global Thought Leaders for Capital Markets” in its 2018 survey.
