Jo-Anna BrimmerMcCarthy Tétrault

McCarthy Tétrault’s first-class financial institutions offering is reflected in its capital markets practice, where the firm is widely recognized for its record in representing underwriters on debt and equity offerings. Among its recent highlights in this sphere, Montreal-based capital markets co-head Patrick Boucher advised a syndicate of dealers, led by National Bank Financial, on a C$750m offering of medium-term notes. The team is also a regular fixture on the issuer side, as evidenced by its its work for Cameco Corporation on its $747.6m bought deal offering; high-profile capital markets co-head Andrew Parker led the group’s involvement in that deal from Toronto. Other key contacts include Toronto-based national financial services chair Marc MacMullin, who is a go-to name for structured finance; Toronto’s Jo-Anna Brimmer, who specializes in securitization, covered bonds and debt capital markets; structured finance co-lead Dean Masse, who is also in Toronto; and Calgary-based Alyson Goldman.
