The new 2013-14 edition of Who’s Who Legal from the American Bar Assn. International Division hails five Sotos lawyers as being tops in the franchise field in Canada – more than any other law firm in the country and representing nearly 20% of all Canadian lawyers cited by the publication.
The introduction to the section notes, “… systems from around the world are using Canada as a key part of their expansion into North America.”
This is how Who’s Who Legal describes the five Sotos lawyers:
“Sotos fields the highest number of practitioners to this chapter with five listings.
