Globe and Mail: ALG the Most-Recommended Criminal Law Firm in Canada

The Globe and Mail named Addario Law Group LLP the most-recommended criminal law firm in Canada in its annual list of Canada's Best Law Firms. To create the 2024 list the Globe surveyed over 3000 lawyers, in-house counsel, and executives. The list names the most-recommended firms across 31 fields.

The Globe noted ALG's history of high-profile and precedent-setting mandates:
Defence counsel Frank Addario’s eponymous firm practices criminal, regulatory and constitutional law, representing clients during investigations, at trial and on appeal. Addario has acted on dozens of high-profile cases; last year, he won acquittal for former CannTrust Holdings CEO Peter Aceto on fraud and securities offences. He also represented intervenor Criminal Lawyers’ Association in one of the most impactful Supreme Court of Canada cases, R. v. Jordan, which introduced a new set of timelines for the hearing of criminal cases in Canada.
