We are delighted to announce our Canada IFLR1000 Women Leaders for 2023. The sixth edition is the most comprehensive yet, featuring around 1000 lawyers globally. It is a privilege to be able recognise the work of all the outstanding women. 

IFLR1000 Women Leaders is an elite ranking category reserved for the most prominent women lawyers across the world working in the areas of law IFLR1000 researches. This is an exclusive group of lawyers with outstanding reputations within their markets who either have expertise and experience of working on complex deals, or who have risen to hold leadership roles with their firms or their practices. For some individuals both these things are true. 


Research methodology  

IFLR1000's research teams in Hong Kong, London, New York and Sofia collectively analyse thousands of research submissions, conduct thousands of interviews with law firm partners, and survey tens of thousands of clients to determine IFLR1000's Women Leaders. 

Each year Women Leaders uses the previous submission cycle's data for the research. Women Leaders 2023 will be based primarily on submissions made in 2022. We consider all female lawyers working in our areas of research as Women Leaders but firms that participate in our research (see guidelines) can nominate individuals and individual lawyers can nominate themselves by taking our Lawyer Survey.
