Lawyers at Torys strike the right note for being ‘willing to shape documents to fit unique transactions‘. The group’s diverse client base includes major banks, pension funds, corporate borrowers and public sector entities, whom it advises on a range of lending transactions and strategic regulatory matters. On the transactional side, Toronto-based Adam Delean ranks among Canada’s leading lights; he recently advised Royal Bank of Canada, and the lending syndicate, on providing C$485m senior secured credit facilities to Pet Valu Canada. Amanda Balasubramanian, who co-heads the banking and debt finance practice alongside Delean, and Tom Zverina are also noted for transactional matters in Toronto, while pre-eminent specialist Blair Keefe and the increasingly prominent Jill McCutcheon are optimal choices for regulatory issues. Outside of Toronto, the firm’s Calgary office is held up by one banking client as ‘the best in the city‘, with Kevin Fougere recommended for his strength in energy-related matters. Fougere recently advised ATB Financial on the project financing of the East Strathmore 20 MW Solar Project in Alberta. Calgary-based senior associate Tyrel Henderson is also highlighted for his ‘excellent work‘.
