Infrastructure and projects

Within: Infrastructure and projects

The projects team at Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP is a ‘well-oiled machine’ and there is a feeling in the market that the firm is beginning to catch up with the best in the field’. Particular praise is reserved for Toronto-based financial services chair Chris Bennett, who is considered by many to be ‘peerless in the project finance space’. Bennett is advising the shortlisted Trillium Link consortium on its bid for Stage 2 of the Trillium Link Extension project. Toronto-based Tobor Emakpor is also highly regarded and with Bennett advised on a string of highlight deals, including advising EllisDon Capital and STRABAG (as lead partners in the Toronto Tunnel Partners consortium) on the C$116.9m Highway 401 Rail Tunnel project. Toronto-based Rocco Sebastiano and Calgary's Lorne Carson are also respected names.
