Torys was involved in advising on five of Canada's top ten business deals of 2012, including the number one and number two deals, as featured in Lexpert's January 2013 issue:
1. Deal of the Year: Maple/TMX
"It's probably one of the most important deals in Canada in the last decade," says Sharon Geraghty, who led the TMX-side Torys team, which included the magic touch of long-time senior counsel for TMX Richard Balfour.
"Agriculture is the new mining," says James Scarlett, and in Canada there's no deal that showcases this development better than global giant Glencore's acquisition – and simultaneous divesture – of Viterra, all unfolding while Glencore chased its massive merger of fellow global giant Xstrata.
