Harper Grey is very proud to announce that our partner, Barbara Norell, QC, has received a 2017 Lexpert® Zenith award in recognition of her outstanding contribution to the legal profession. Barbara was among a select group of women who were officially recognized during the dinner and awards presentation hosted by Lexpert on Thursday, June 22, 2017 at the Arcadian Court Hotel in Toronto.
Every four years, the Lexpert® Zenith Awards celebrate the advancement of women in the legal profession. The Awards honour women lawyers who have led their clients, firms, companies, departments, faculties, profession, colleagues and communities; and have been a role model for other women in the profession.
Barbara exemplifies leadership. She is a motivating force and dedicated supporter of initiatives to encourage the leadership and retention of women in law. She is a sought after mentor, generous in sharing her time and knowledge. She is a passionate and tireless advocate of causes she holds dear. For these reasons and many others Barbara has long been a leader in our firm and in the community and has more than earned her place among the country’s most impactful women.
“As a leader, lawyer and person, Barbara is an inspiration to us all,” says Richard Bereti, Managing Partner. “Her dedication reaffirms Harper Grey’s commitment to supporting the success of women – in the workplace, in business and in the community at large. Congratulations Barbara from your friends and colleagues at Harper Grey.”
The winners will be featured in the June/July issue of Lexpert Magazine. Learn more about the Lexpert® Zenith Awards here.
