Amanda BalasubramanianTorys

Torys offers a strong financial services practice, acting on behalf of both blue-chip corporate borrowers and Canadian lenders. One of the firm’s key strengths is its understanding of the national regulatory environment, and it has advised the Big Six Canadian banks on a number of matters including the bank recapitalization regime.  On the transactional side, the firm has extensive experience in leveraged transactions and acquisition financing, particularly those involving private equity. The team is primarily based out of Toronto, with Adam Delean and Amanda Balasubramanian co-heading the banking and debt finance group. Delean is known for his work with leveraged and structured financings, often leading on multibillion-dollar transactions with the Big Six banks, and Balasubramanian advises on corporate debt financings. On the regulatory side, Blair Keefe is regarded for his market-leading practice, which includes a number of high-value acquisitions. Tom Zverina is noted for his M&A and mining financing work, and Kevin Fougere has an active transactional practice based out of Calgary.
