Every year, the TOP 50 lawyers out of Canada’s 120,000 lawyers are recognized for their outstanding achievements and awarded the coveted LEXPERT Zenith Award.
Congratulations to our Founder and Chief Information Officer, Antree Demakos for winning the Zenith 2 years in a row, an honour which has never been granted before.
This year, the Zenith Award is for ‘Celebrating Women in Law’, and the Keynote Speaker was Justice Rosalie Silberman Abella, Supreme Court of Canada.

Jean Cumming, Editor-in-chief for LEXPERT, The Business Magazine For Lawyers says, “this years Zenith winners are lawyers who have advanced the position of women in the profession and in society by leading firms, starting firms or organizations, and making ground-breaking contributions.
Increasingly, as they pursue these initiatives, they do so with leaders from other equity-seeking groups. This year, the Zenith Awards were very competitive. We might well say there is a lot of work yet to be done to achieve justice. At the same time, we see their achievements as a basis for optimism, especially since we know they are not stopping anytime soon.”
