Sophie MelchersNorton Rose Fulbright

Based across six offices in Canada, Norton Rose Fulbright has a national dispute resolution offering that is especially strong in some of the more heavily regulated industries in the country, from transport and infrastructure to financial services, energy and natural resources. The team in Alberta is one of the leading practices in the province and has a ‘bench strength that is hard to match‘, with areas of expertise including Indigenous relations, insolvency, data privacy and major class actions. Securities and class actions expert Steven Leitl QC is a key figure. Also in Calgary is Lara Mason, who is highlighted as ‘efficient, detailed, and creative‘. The firm’s offering in Quebec remains one of the strongest in the province, acting for several major companies across the key industry sectors of finance; energy; mining; technology; transport and infrastructure; and life sciences. Senior figures Pierre Bienvenu and Jean Bertrand are both well respected in the market, and Sophie Melchers is also a key name, especially in securities litigation. In the Vancouver office, Daniel Bennett QC focuses on trial, arbitration, hearing and appeal work in commercial and administrative litigation, while Beth Allard is the name to note for construction disputes. Orestes Pasparakis and Linda Fuerst are among the leading litigators in Ontario. Allison Kuntz and Alan Merskey left the firm.
