Infrastructure and projects

Within: Infrastructure and projects

Norton Rose Fulbright’s national practice is a force in Vancouver, which is the seat of sought-after national Group head Greg Lewis QC, who is ‘consistently open to debate and always calm, cool and curious’. James LeMoine, also in Vancouver, is an ‘excellent lawyer’ and advised a transit authority on a line extension project. In Montreal, senior sector specialist Robert Bordaus and Alain Ricard acted for an infrastructure client regarding a light rail project. Ottawa’s Geoffrey G. Gilbert and Vancouver’s Matt Mulligan are also recommended.

The ‘client-focused team’ at Norton Rose Fulbright is ‘expert in the mining area’, according to some. Historically known for its ability to plug into a ‘tier one global practice’, sources report that it has been ‘increasingly active on the local mining scene’. Among its highlights, Toronto’s David McIntyre acted alongside the firm’s Beijing and Hong Kong offices to advise a mining company on the purchase of a stake in gold mine and various joint venture arrangements. In Ottawa, infrastructure expert Geoffrey G. Gilbert paired up with of counsel and ‘responsive problem-solverAlison Babbitt to advise a mining company on a project finance package with a couple of finance providers. Marvin Singer and Robert Mason are also key contacts — both are in Toronto.
