Lawyer Rankings

Canada > Banking and finance

Very practical lawyers with a deep bench‘, Norton Rose Fulbright impresses clients with its extensive international reach, cited as ‘useful when looking at cross-border transactions‘. Equally adept at advising both lenders and borrowers, the group handles the full-range of corporate leveraged loans, asset-based lending, acquisition finance, project finance and structured finance, with particular expertise in multi-jurisdictional deals. High-profile names include Calgary-based Rick Borden, who is acclaimed for project finance and energy-related matters; he recently advised Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce and Bank of Montreal on providing C$420m syndicated and bilateral credit facilities to the Calgary Airport Authority, as part of the latter’s debt restructuring. In Montreal, national practice coordinator Peter Wiazowski, asset-based lending co-head Arnold Cohen and corporate finance partner David Lemieux are recommended. Key names in Toronto include David Amato, who co-chairs the asset-based lending group, and Elana Hahn, who maintains a broad banking and finance practice. Vancouver’s Matthew Choi and Toronto’s Russell Dufault were both elevated to the partnership in January 2022.
