News Aug 24, 2023

In the 2024 edition of Best Lawyers in Canada, McMillan lawyers achieve an outstanding 169 rankings across 40 practice areas, an increase of 25% more rankings. We applaud 24 of our lawyers who are ranked for the first time. Overall, 91 lawyers are listed as “Leaders” and 15 as “Ones to Watch” in their respective fields.

Also in the 2024 edition, Guy Pinsonnault has earned the distinction of Ottawa’s Competition / Antitrust Lawyer of the Year. Guy is a widely recognized authority in competition and antitrust law who advises clients on compliance with Canadian business regulations and represents them in litigation.

“Congratulations to Guy on his well-deserved recognition,” says Martin Thompson, Office Management Partner, Ottawa. “Guy offers unique insights of the Competition Bureau’s protocols, coupled with sound judgement, both of which are invaluable to address antitrust, competition and foreign investment issues. Guy is deeply invested in the success of clients and exemplifies McMillan’s ability to support leaders.”

McMillan’s outstanding rankings in the 2024 edition of Best Lawyers in Canada demonstrate our ongoing commitment to offering the industry-relevant legal services that clients expect from a national business law firm.
