‘Among the market leaders’, Stikeman Elliott LLP fields a comprehensive insurance practice, which routinely advises major insurers, reinsurers and brokers on transactional, regulatory and contentious matters. The group, which spans the firm’s Toronto, Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver offices, is led by Toronto-based M&A and commercial partner Stuart Carruthers. Carruthers, who is a ‘go-to-partner in the insurance area’, recently advised Integro Insurance Brokers on the sale of its Canadian subsidiary, Integro (Canada), to Hub International. He also advised Great-West Life, Manulife, Sun Life, Empire Life and Industrial Alliance on the launch of APEXA, a common software and services platform. Montreal's Laurent Fortier is a key contact for insurance litigation and, together with Montreal-based Matthew Liben, defended Chubb in property and delay in start-up claims relating to the refurbishment of a nuclear power station. Other noted insurance litigators include Montreal-based Peter J. Cullen.
