We provide our full range of corporate, litigation, regulatory/environmental and tax services to clients in established and emerging sectors. Our lawyers are creative, sophisticated and highly experienced in cross-border and international business and deal-making.

Since then we have worked on some of the biggest oil and gas deals ever seen in Canada and helped clients develop the industry into a global powerhouse.
