Attorneys are assessed on quality of legal advice, value for money, commercial awareness, effective communication, billing transparency, tailored fee structures, response time, sharing of expertise and use of technology.

"Tax, labor, environmental, intellectual property, immigration, even insolvency and litigation are all areas that can be needed in any given transaction. I am impressed with the depth and breadth of resources we have at Dickinson Wright. This award recognizes that the firm is well-placed to provide efficient and responsive service to our clients."
In his practice, Mr. High counsels buyers and sellers in mergers or acquisitions in a number of industries. He also serves as counsel to closely-held corporations, private equity firms and domestic offices of Canadian and other foreign businesses.
