Glenn Zacher - Stikeman Elliott LLP

Within: Energy and natural resources: power

Stikeman Elliott LLP’s power practice is represented throughout the firm’s generous national network, with robust footholds in Toronto, Montreal and Calgary. The group, which acts for an impressive stable of energy companies, public bodies, project developers and lenders, has strong capability in both transactional and regulatory matters — the recent addition of Calgary-based Dennis Langen from Dentons adds further firepower in terms of the latter. Among its recent highlights, Toronto-based energy co-chair Glenn Zacher advised ITC Holdings on the development of the $1.5bn cross-border ITC Lake Erie Connector project. ‘Rising star’ and project finance co-head Patrick Duffy, also in Toronto, advised Atlantic Power on negotiating enhanced dispatch contracts with the Ontario Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO). Calgary’s Keith Miller heads the energy regulatory practice in Alberta and is advising the Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO) on its application to the Alberta Utilities Commission for approval of its proposed 2018 independent system operator (ISO) tariff. Key names on the transactional side include Montreal’s Erik Richer La Flèche and Toronto’s Eric Bremermann. High-profile transactional specialist Jim Harbell retired from the partnership in 2018 but continues to advise on several projects.
