The ‘good and solid team’ at Dentons ‘works seamlessly across global markets’. In an example of its cross-border capability, the Canadian energy department (with a team including Calgary-based M&A co-head William Jenkins, Toronto-based power lead Vivek Bakshi and Calgary’s David Lefebvre) acted alongside the Berlin and Los Angeles offices to advise Enbridge on the C$1.7bn sale of a 49% interest in certain North American power assets and a 49% interest in two German offshore wind projects to CPPIB. On the regulatory front, Calgary partners Bernard J Roth and Laura K. Estep are ‘experienced counsel’.
