E. William Olson has been named the Winnipeg Insurance Lawyer of the Year for 2011.
A partner at Thompson Dorfman Sweatman LLP (TDS), Olson was bestowed the honour by Best Lawyers, a peer-review publication in the legal profession.
“We continue to believe – as we have believed for more than 25 years – that recognition by one’s peers is the most meaningful form of praise in the legal profession,” says Steven Naifeh, president of Best Lawyers.
Lawyers are decided through peer-review surveys, in which thousands of lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers.
Those who earn the title Lawyer of the Year ” have received particularly high ratings in surveys for their abilities, professionalism, and integrity,” Best Lawyers says.
