Canada > Cannabis

Norton Rose Fulbright has ‘experience across all realms of the cannabis industry‘. The team is strong in the regulatory space and is also active in capital markets work and securities litigation. The firm’s business group provides transactional support, with Vancouver-based finance specialist Michael Posnikoff, securities lawyer Linda Fuerst and governance expert Andrea Brewer being key contacts. Fuerst and Brewer are based in Toronto, along with Vanessa Grant, who has expertise in cannabis-sector M&A.

Canada > Capital markets

Norton Rose Fulbright’s full-service corporate finance and securities practice handles a variety of capital markets transactions from its bases in Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec. The team advises both issuers and underwriters on debt and equity deals and is noted for being among the few Canadian firms with a dedicated covered bonds practice. Its extensive international network is another important differentiator, and, indeed, the team consistently works alongside other offices throughout its network to advise on cross-border mandates. In Calgary, department co-head Kirsty Sklar had a busy year in energy-related transactions. Calgary-based Marcus Archer is also recommended for energy offerings. Elliot Shapiro co-chairs the practice from Montréal and has a solid record in cross-border deals. Toronto-based co-lead Andrea Brewer advises on all aspects of securities law and related governance issues.
