Precedent is pleased to present the recipients of the inaugural Precedent Setter Awards.
We established the awards to recognize lawyers in their first 10 years who have shown excellence and leadership in their practices and in their communities. We knew they were out there and your many nominations proved us right.

Our judges — outstanding lawyers in their own right — were extremely impressed with the calibre of nominees. The six individuals you’ll meet on the following pages are all trailblazers. Their backgrounds, areas of practice and passions are incredibly diverse. But they have one important thing in common: an intense enthusiasm for the law and for the communities of which they are a part. They are changing laws and changing lives. They set a fabulous precedent and we are very proud to honour them with these awards.
