Benchmark Litigation Canada has published its guide to the leading litigation teams in the country.
The guide’s results are the culmination of a four-month research period during which time extensive interviews are conducted with litigators and their clients. The researchers examine casework handled by the firms and seek opinions on litigators practicing within their province or practice area. Using this client and peer-review methodology, Benchmark strives to provide the most accurate and comprehensive coverage of the Canadian litigation market.
Robertson Stromberg is pleased to see that the firm is ranked as a Recommended Firm for the province of Saskatchewan. Lawyers singled out as “local litigation stars” include M. Kim Anderson in the area of Insolvency Law and Gary Young in the areas of Class Action, Commercial, Insurance, and Intellectual Property. This designation reflects individuals who were recommended consistently as reputable and effective litigators by clients and peers.
Benchmark also lists Jennifer Pereira and Sean Sinclair as “future stars”. This designation is given to “ones to watch”, lawyers who are rapidly building their reputations in the market.
Jennifer Pereira, QC and Curtis Clavelle will present a webinar to Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association members on April 16, 2019. They will discuss the best responses to lawsuits, and what you can do to protect your municipality, prepare your case, and avoid unnecessary costs.
Congratulations to Jennifer Da Silva Pereira who is among the eighteen distinguished Saskatchewan lawyers honoured with the Queen’s Counsel Designation for 2018.
Queen’s Counsel appointments are based on recommendations from a selection committee consisting of Saskatchewan’s Minister of Justice and Attorney General, the Chief Justice of the Court of Appeal for Saskatchewan or the Chief Justice of the Court of Queen’s Bench and the past presidents of the Saskatchewan branch of the Canadian Bar Association and the Law Society of Saskatchewan.
The announcement was made by Justice Minister and Attorney General Don Morgan on Tuesday, December 18. In his announcement he said, “These individuals have made significant contributions to the legal profession, the justice system and their communities. I’m pleased to recognize their hard work and dedication to our province.”
Those who know Jennifer are well aware of her talents and energy. Alongside her busy practice, Jennifer tirelessly contributes to her profession and her local, provincial and national communities.

Well done and well deserved, Jenn.
