The Honourable R. Roy McMurtry was a recipient of the 2012 Lexpert® Zenith award at a gala ceremony held in Toronto on October 11, 2012. Celebrating leadership through innovation, the award acknowledges lawyers who’ve been change-agents for forty or more years, for their clients, firms, companies, departments, faculties, profession, colleagues and/or communities. When looking at the criteria for choosing winners of this award, Lexpert state they select individuals who enable, paradoxically, both change and adaptation. In some cases, this requires taking action to preserve values and professionalism; in other cases, it means challenging the status quo.

As a member of Gowlings’ advocacy department, where he serves as counsel to the Firm, Roy personifies the ideal of leadership through change. During his stellar career thus far, he has held appointments as Chief Justice of the Superior Court and Chief Justice of Ontario, been named as High Commissioner (Ambassador) to Great Britain and was recently selected as an Officer of the Order of Canada.
