Lawyers and guests packed into the Vanity Fair Ballroom at the Omni King Edward Hotel last week to celebrate the 17th annual Toronto Lawyers Association awards.

The 2017 Award of Distinction went to Dale Ponder, the national managing partner at Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP, for her outstanding contributions to the profession and to the Toronto legal community.

Meanwhile, Stephen Thiele, a partner at Gardiner Roberts LLP, received the 2017 Honsberger Award. “The TLA’s mandated three pillars — information, education and advocacy — are impeccably represented by Mr. Thiele’s dedication to his legal, political and social community,” said Stephen Mullings, the president of the TLA.
