Within: Dispute resolution

Dentons’ group, which has a broad footprint across Canada, stands out for its ability to 'recommend solutions that have the potential to improve the client’s business’. The energy sector is a key source of work, but the practice has a wide focus that also encompasses financial services, mining, manufacturing, construction and transport. The team is particularly robust in Calgary, which is the seat of group co-lead Gordon Tarnowsky QC; he is representing Niko in two ICSID arbitration proceedings. In Toronto, senior counsel and securities litigation lead Robb Heintzman is a 'top litigator and very strong strategist’; he acted alongside Matthew Fleming to represent Deloitte in a complex auditor liability case brought by Livent. The 'proactive and client-focused’ Michael Schafler is also based in Toronto. Other names to note include David Wotherspoon in Vancouver and Laurent Nahmiash in Montreal.
