Dispute resolution

Within: Dispute resolution

Practical and business-savvy’, Norton Rose Fulbright impresses with its ‘top-notch industry knowledge’, particularly on the energy side where it is ‘in the thick of it and up to date on all key issues’. It also shines in natural resources, construction, environmental and corporate and commercial litigation. In Alberta, Clarke Hunter QC stands out as ‘thorough, well-prepared and thoughtful’. In Quebec, star name Pierre Bienvenu, Ad E is representing a hydroelectricity client in litigation concerning the renewal of a longstanding supply contract, while Jean Bertrand Ad E and Sophie Perreault are representing and infrastructure client in a significant constitutional law case. Other respected senior names include Vancouver-based national group head Daniel Bennett QC, Montreal-based Sophie Melchers, and Robert Frank and the ‘very strategic’ Orestes Pasparakis in Toronto. The ‘deep bench’ also features several notable younger partners, including Vancouver-based Ryan Dalziel (‘very strong on public law’) and Toronto’s Rahool P. Agarwal (‘absolutely excellent’). Calgary’s Mary Comeau retired.

Strategic and business-oriented’, Norton Rose Fulbright distinguishes itself through its broad sector experience and strong finance capability. The firm’s expansive national and international network is also a big draw for clients. In Calgary, Howard A. Gorman QC (‘the best in Alberta and among the best in the country’) acted alongside the banking team to advise a major bank client on a recapitalization transaction. In Toronto, Orestes Pasparakis (‘an outstanding litigator’), Evan Cobb (‘strong ability to digest information and focus on the most important issues’) and Virginie Gauthier are advising the monitor in a high-profile bankruptcy. Other senior names are Tony Reyes in Toronto and Montreal-based Sylvain Rigaud.
