March 21, 2011

Torys "has a broad capability across the transactional and contentious spectrum, and is particularly highly acclaimed in climate change law."

"The team delivers a top-notch service, with that extra bit of business acumen." "Its reputation was earned the old-fashioned way: by proving its worth on file after file."

The team covers a variety of industry sectors, including energy, natural resources and manufacturing. Highlights include acting on International Petroleum Investment Company's US$2.3 billion acquisition of NOVA. On the litigious side, the firm represented the Canadian Wind Energy Association on a case involving a regional government and a political pressure group, among other matters.

  • Dennis Mahony heads the environmental group and is "well-noted as a leading practitioner in climate change law." Sources describe him as "a practical and ambitious lawyer who thoroughly understands the client's business and has exceptional judgment."
  • Tyson Dyck is "a promising associate" who focuses on transactions. He is viewed as "diligent, on the ball and responsive."
