Dentons houses a ‘solid and diverse energy practice, which can cover most needs’. However, clients draw particular attention to its ‘unmatched regulatory expertise’, with one source asserting ‘most firms lack the depth of strategic regulatory insight that this team possesses’. Most notably, energy regulatory head Bernard J Roth is ‘exemplary’ and Laura K. Estep ‘excels at strategy and detail’. On the transactional front, energy lead Michael A Hurst, together with ‘rising star’ George Antonopoulos, advised Cenovus Energy on the C$940m sale of its Weyburn oil facility to Whitecap Resources. Elsewhere, Toby Allan and newly promoted partner Courtney Burton advised a consortium comprising MIE Holdings, the Can-China Global Resource Fund and Mercuria on the C$722m acquisition of CQ Energy Canada Partnership.
