Michael Fortier featured among Canada’s leading energy lawyers by Lexpert

September 06, 2019

Partner Michael J. Fortier is profiled on the cover of Lexpert’s special edition “Canada’s leading energy lawyers” as a leading practitioner in the energy sector.

Michael’s practice focuses on resolving clients’ key environmental issues in the energy, infrastructure, mining and real estate sectors, arising in the context of projects, deals and disputes. For example, he recently advised Canada Pension Plan Investment Board on the largest power transaction in Canada and defended clients Morguard Corporation, Ontario Power Generation and K+S Windsor Salt in environmental matters essential to their businesses.

In highlighting significant corporate transactions in the energy sector, Lexpert also discusses Torys’ work as counsel to Inter Pipeline in its divestiture of the Heartland Petrochemical Complex’s Central Utility Block to Fengate Capital Management. Our Calgary oil and gas team brought together expertise from across the firm’s energy, infrastructure, finance, real estate, tax and litigation practices to drive this transaction to its completion.
