Honouring excellence in the field of business law and litigation across Canada, Josie Marks from our Moncton office has been recognized with a Lexpert® Rising Star: Leading Lawyer Under 40 award. Winners of this award have demonstrated an outstanding track record of success in deals, cases or files, have made contributions to the legal profession, demonstrated organizational success in their place of work with a unique, innovative and effective approach to client service, as well as strong community involvement.
As a leading appellate court advocate Josie has successfully argued numerous complex appeals across numerous practice areas.

She has facilitated training sessions for lawyers to grow their capacity in immigration law, and has helped to build the skills of immigration consultants and not-for-profit organizations to help ensure newcomers obtain accurate information and legal advice.
