Bennett Jones LLP boosted its corporate department through a trio of partner hires: Ted Shoub joined the Toronto office from Dentons; Jana Prete joined in Calgary from Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP; and Ian Michael joined in Toronto from McCarthy Tétrault. The practice has a market-leading presence in Alberta, with key names in Calgary and Edmonton, and it continues to build its reputation in the Toronto market. Calgary is the seat of eminent managing partner Perry Spitznagel QC, who earns widespread acclaim. The firm’s Alberta pedigree ensures a steady flow of energy-related transactions and David Spencer led the firm’s advice to Repsol in its C$15.1bn acquisition of Talisman Energy. In another key Calgary deal, Brent Kraus advised Waste Connections on its C$14.8bn merger with Progressive Waste Solutions. Alan Bell is recommended in Toronto.
