Rosalind Cooper - FASKEN

Within: Environment

FASKEN’s group impresses with its ‘broad practice scope’ and ‘extensive national coverage’. The firm’s signature strength in mining matters ensures it is particularly sought after for environmental issues in that sphere but it also packs a punch in the energy, real estate, transportation, aquaculture and manufacturing sectors. Toronto-based Rosalind Cooper is a ‘force in the market’ and successfully defended CP Rail in a prosecution under the Environmental Protection Act concerning an alleged failure to report a spill. In Vancouver, Kevin O’Callaghan represented fish farming company, Cermaq Canada, in a court challenge to the environmental regulations relating to the transfer of fish. Vancouver-based energy specialist Ron Ezekiel and ‘very strong’ Montreal-based environmental expert Pierre-Olivier Charlebois are also key contacts.
