Capital markets

Within: Capital markets

Norton Rose Fulbright scores highly for its ‘practical advice’, ‘strong business understanding’ and ‘ability to bring in specialist resources as required’. The group, which has close relationships with both underwriters and issuers, packs a punch in energy and natural resources-related matters and also shines in financial services, infrastructure and life sciences — particularly on the debt side. Highlights included Montreal-based partners Stephen J. Kelly and Solomon Sananes advising the underwriters on two public offerings. Also in Montreal, Elliot Shapiro advised on several private offerings of debentures. Calgary-based Marcus W. Archer and Toronto-based Andrea Brewer lead the national group alongside Shapiro. Toronto’s Elana M. Hahn is also recommended for her ‘broad knowledge of international capital market practice’.

Norton Rose Fulbright is lauded for providing ‘insightful advice from both a legal and strategic perspective’. Regulatory expert Don Davies QC is a ‘leading light’ and is representing a major energy transmission client in regulatory proceedings. Wayne W. Fedun is a ‘great dealmaker’ and, together with Marcus W. Archer, advised another major petroleum company on a large acquisition. Corporate finance partner Rick Borden had a stellar year on the energy side, which included advising a midstream client on the acquisition of a 50% ownership interest in a pipeline and a 100% interest in a storage terminal. Clients also single out Justin E. Ferrara (‘a senior securities specialist’); Ryan Keays (‘provides to-the-point advice’); Robert Froehlich (‘profound industry knowledge’); and Rujuta Patel (‘very tactical’).
