23 January 2018

Brenda Pritchard, an advertising and marketing law partner in Gowling WLG's Toronto office, has been named among the Top 13 Female Acritas Stars globally for 2018.

Acritas recently released its list of the top international female lawyers who were ranked in Sharplegal, its global survey of the legal market. More than 10,000 nominations of stand-out lawyers were made by senior in-house counsel from around the world over the last three years - but only 13 female lawyers, including Pritchard, received three or more distinct Star nominations.

Clients spoke highly of Pritchard in their submissions, with one saying, "She spots the issue really quickly and comes up with creative solutions."

For over 30 years, Pritchard has provided strategic advice on advertising and marketing law for many of the world's top brands and creative agencies. Her in-depth expertise and ability to deliver practical, effective results have made her a top choice for clients.

She has been recognized in Chambers Canada, the Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory, the Lexpert/American Lawyer Guide to the Leading 500 Lawyers, and the Best Lawyers in Canada.

In 2017, Pritchard was one of five Gowling female partners to receive the Lexpert Zenith award. Last year's awards celebrated the advancement of women in law and honoured women who have demonstrated excellence and thought leadership in the legal profession.

In addition to Pritchard's impressive ranking, forty-seven Gowling WLG professionals across Canada, the UK, France, Russia and the UAE were listed as stand out-lawyers in the Acritas Stars database for 2018.

Considered the world's leading legal industry research firm, Acritas provides key business intelligence to the global legal marketplace.
