Pat Maguire comments on CBA National's look at some of the areas Canadian law firms are focusing on as work in most sectors ramps up.
Pat Maguire, the vice-chair of Bennett Jones and managing partner of the firm's Calgary office, says mining has also been busy for the firm as gold remains hot. The firm has seen growth in its M&A business on the oil and gas side with consolidation taking place in that sector.
Civil infrastructure, renewable power, hydrogen and technologies driven by climate change and emission reductions are also areas where the firm expects to see more investment activity.
"The Alberta economy is blessed with an abundance of technically talented people, creative capital and risk-takers, and we're well-positioned to be part of that evolution...," says Maguire.
