Toronto (February 5, 2015) — Borden Ladner Gervais LLP (BLG) is honoured to have been selected as the 2015 Public Procurement Firm of the Year by the Who’s Who Legal Awards. The award recognizes BLG as the leader in public procurement law in the world, and is based on independent research and market feedback received by Who’s Who Legal.

“It is an incredible honour to be singled out as the world leader in procurement law,” said Cindy Clarke, national group head of the Specialized Litigation Group at BLG. “This recognition is due to the strength of our professionals, who really understand our clients’ business needs and are able to apply their superior understanding of procurement laws in a way that provides the maximum benefit and protects our client’s interests.”

BLG’s Public Procurement Group has worked on the development, design and implementation of many of Canada’s largest government purchases and some of the most complex infrastructure procurement processes on behalf of government departments and agencies, Crown Corporations, municipalities, hospitals, and the education sector throughout Canada. Additionally, our public procurement professionals have advised private corporations participating in multi-billion dollar procurement processes. The combined experience and expertise of the professionals in the group allow them to provide clients with advice on issues arising in public procurement and government contracting matters.

“Our aim is always to provide sound, practical advice to our clients, and deliver winning litigation services when issues do arise,” said John Blair, national group head of the Commercial Litigation Group at BLG. “BLG’s procurement lawyers have represented clients before all levels of court throughout Canada, including the Supreme Court of Canada, and Canada’s federal bid challenge authority, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal.”

“This award acknowledges the pre-eminence of BLG’s public procurement team who, in every office of BLG, help government and private sector clients navigate the complex world of government purchasing,” said Gerry Stobo, national leader of the Public Procurement Group at BLG.
