Welcome to Canadian Lawyer’s survey of the top insurance defense boutiques, tax boutiques and wills, trusts & estates boutiques. We're looking for your input on the best firms specializing in insurance defense, tax law and wills, trusts & estates. The list for each practice area is found on a separate page of the survey.


Canadian Lawyer is surveying the legal community for input on Canada's top insurance defense, tax law and wills trusts & estates. Law firms that are included in our short list practise exclusively or almost exclusively in these three areas. While there are large law firms whose practices are in these areas, we've defined "boutique" to mean firms with a minimum of 80 per cent of their revenue derived from insurance defense, tax law or wills trusts & estates.


Please note that our lists are not definitive, and you can use the opportunity in each section to add your own nominee if you feel any worthy ones have been missed. Also, the survey results are not determinative of the final list. Our editorial team will make the final selections after drawing on the experience of in-house counsel and large-firm lawyers who refer work to these boutiques. Thanks for taking part!
