Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP’s power practice, which is active across the gamut of commercial, financing, corporate and regulatory matters, ‘ranks among the best in Ontario’, according to some. It also has an increasingly strong presence in Calgary, which was further strengthened by the arrival of Craig Spurn from McCarthy Tétrault. Toronto-based Rocco Sebastiano heads the department and is advising Bruce Power on the C$13bn Bruce Power Major Component Replacement Program, as part of the refurbishment of the Bruce Power Nuclear Generating Station. Toronto’s Jacob A. Sadikman ‘knows the power sector inside out’ and advised TransCanada on the C$540m sale of its Ontario solar portfolio to Axium Infinity Solar LP. Richard King, also in Toronto, is recommended for regulatory issues and led the regulatory advice to Hydro One in its $6.7bn acquisition of Avista.
