John Mascarin Honoured with Bruce A. Noble Distinguished Canadian Municipal Lawyer Award

Aird & Berlis is pleased to announce that John Mascarin is this year’s recipient of the Bruce A. Noble Distinguished Canadian Municipal Lawyer Award.

The award is presented by the International Municipal Lawyers Association (IMLA) to a Canadian member of IMLA who has demonstrated excellence in the profession. The Bruce A. Noble Distinguished Canadian Municipal Lawyer Award is named in honour of IMLA’s first Canadian President, whose outstanding achievements on behalf of IMLA and many other legal associations were only matched by his passion for the practice of law and knowledge of municipal law practice.

John is a member of the firm’s Municipal and Land Use Planning Group. He is widely regarded as a leader in municipal, planning and local government law and is the lead for the firm’s municipal accountability team, representing dozens of municipalities and advising many accountability officers across all of Ontario. He previously received an IMLA President’s Award for Most Outstanding Association Member in 2011, which is given to a private sector lawyer practising local government law – the first Canadian lawyer to be so honoured.

IMLA is a non-profit, professional organization that has been an advocate and resource for local government attorneys in the United States and Canada since 1935.

Congratulations, John, on this well-deserved recognition!
