Toronto (November 20, 2015) — Borden Ladner Gervais LLP (BLG) is pleased to announce Rebecca Bush, a partner in the firm's Litigation Department in Toronto, has received a 2015 Lexpert® Rising Stars award for her outstanding contribution to the legal profession.

"To be honoured as a Rising Star by Lexpert® is not only a recognition of Rebecca's legal expertise, it is a testament to the additional value she provides her clients, the firm and the wider legal profession," said Sean Weir, national managing partner and CEO at BLG. "Her ability to build strong relationships has helped her excel at providing clients with exceptional service and become a role model and mentor to BLG's young lawyers."

Rebecca has a proven track record of successfully managing a high volume litigation practice, focusing on public authority litigation and complex tort litigation for large institutional clients. She has expertise in municipal and police liability, product liability and harassment claims, and holds specialized expertise defending employment torts including workplace-based psychological injury and mental distress damages claims in the employment and human rights context.

Outside of BLG, Rebecca is very active in the American Bar Association's Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section (TIPS), which has over 25,000 members including lawyers and judges from across the U.S. and internationally. She is currently the chair-elect of the Trial Techniques Committee and will assume the role of chair in 2016. She is also currently a vice-chair of the Business Litigation and Corporate Counsel Committees.

The Lexpert® Rising Stars awards are presented annually and identify exceptional Canadian legal talent under the age of 40 from both in-house and private practice, in all areas of the law. Recipients are nominated by either their firms or their clients, and winners are selected by an advisory board consisting of the profession's leadership.
