Torys is delighted to welcome two new highly regarded lawyers to our Calgary office. Lou Cusano and David Wood are well-known lawyers in Alberta. They are experts in the areas of administrative and regulatory law and commercial litigation, particularly in matters pertaining to the energy sector. Their skills and experience will greatly enhance the capabilities of our Infrastructure and Energy Practice in both the power and the oil and gas sectors.
Lou and David advise on all aspects relating to electricity, pipelines, heavy oil and oilsands development, and wells, carriers and facilities. They have appeared before all levels of Alberta courts and regularly appear before regulatory tribunals, including the National Energy Board, the Alberta Utilities Commission, the Alberta Energy Resources Conservation Board, the British Columbia Utilities Commission, the Alberta Environmental Appeal Board, Alberta Surface Rights Board, the Alberta Securities Commission and the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
We continue to expand Torys’ Calgary presence to assist our Canadian and international clients who are increasingly active in Alberta. Our lawyers in Calgary have worked on some of the largest transactions in the Canadian energy sector. We have represented clients on a variety of power projects and oil and gas projects across Canada and the United States and globally – from exploration and production to processing and transportation. In just over a year, Torys’ Calgary team has grown from 7 to 20 lawyers, and continued expansion is planned.
