Suzanne MurphyMcCarthy Tétrault

McCarthy Tétrault maintains a dominant commercial power practice that harnesses the wider firm’s signature corporate strength, which is additionally supported by significant regulatory capability. The team’s industry expertise spans a varied mix of wind, hydro, nuclear, and co-generation power projects, while its broad national footprint ensures that it is routinely involved in matters across the country — it also handles US-related work. Toronto-based Seán O’Neill spearheads the department and has a focus on power transactions; he recently advised Renewable Energy Systems Canada on the sale of the Bekevar Wind Project to Innagreen Canada Holdings C and Innagreen Canada Holdings D. The group additionally draws on high-profile infrastructure and projects expert David Lever and transactional power partner Suzanne Murphy — both of whom are based in Toronto — as well as Calgary-based energy regulation specialist Kimberly Howard. Former energy regulation lead George Vegh retired.
