Toronto (August 19, 2015) — Borden Ladner Gervais LLP (BLG) is pleased to be shortlisted for two Chambers Canada Awards, in the categories of Energy Team of the Year and Employment Team of the Year.

The awards recognize Canadian law firms on the basis of outstanding work, impressive strategic growth and excellence in client service, from research conducted by Chambers & Partners (one of the world's most reputable legal ranking publishers) for the inaugural Chambers Canada guide. They reflect notable achievements over the past 12 months.

BLG's Energy Team is comprised of lawyers who specialize in electricity markets and oil & gas. In the current edition of Chambers Global, the Electricity Markets Group is noted for their “commendable expertise in all aspects of electricity law, including regulatory, retailing and transmission matters.” According to a source, “They are a market leader when it comes to distribution.” BLG's Oil & Gas Group provides support and counsel to leading oil & gas companies during every phase of project approval, from project initiation, financing and strategy through closing the deal.

The Labour and Employment Group at BLG is highlighted in the current version of Chambers Global as a “nationwide full-service firm with a well-regarded offering in both labour and employment, and pensions and benefits,” offering “a holistic approach.” Individually, members of the group are singled out by sources as “exceptional” and “very smart and well versed in recent case law,” with clients impressed by the depth of the Group's knowledge of labour relations.

The Chambers Canada Awards will be held on October 1, 2015 in Toronto.
