KPMG Law congratulates U.S. Immigration Practice Leader Beth Nanton on being named Lexpert Rising Star: Leading Lawyer Under 40


KPMG in Canada congratulates KPMG Law LLP Partner Beth Nanton on being named a 2020 Lexpert Rising Star: Leading Lawyer Under 40.

Presented annually, the Rising Star award celebrates young lawyers from across Canada who are at the top of their legal profession.

Ms. Nanton leads KPMG Law's U.S. Immigration practice and has expertise in US labour law and its intersection with U.S. immigration law. In Canada, there is only a limited number of lawyers who practice in this highly specialized field.

"Beth's sound legal counsel and winning strategies for clients are the reason for her stellar reputation as a "fixer" and the incredibly high demand for her expertise," says Lucy Iacovelli, Canadian Managing Partner for Tax and Chief Administrative Officer of KPMG Law LLP. "She has contributed so much to our clients' success in the complex and ever-changing area of U.S. immigration law, and we're delighted that her hard work is being recognized. Beth is also passionate about serving her community and, through her pro bono work and volunteerism, demonstrates a genuine concern for refugees and disadvantaged individuals."

Ms. Nanton is licensed to practice law in three jurisdictions: New York, Ontario and British Columbia. She advises corporate clients on a wide range of legal issues, including expatriation, naturalization, permanent residence, temporary work authorization, government policy and regulatory compliance. Her previous experience and willingness to drive change has given her a unique perspective and insights, focused on helping to improve the immigration system for all stakeholders.

Rising Stars finalists are nominated by their peers on criteria such as leadership, professional achievements, business acumen, adaptability, teamwork and interpersonal skills.

A complete list of all this year's winners can be found in the November/December issue of Lexpert magazine.
