Experienced Energy Transactional Lawyer John E. Piasta Joins McCarthy Tétrault

To help clients unlock more value in Alberta’s dynamic and evolving energy sector, McCarthy Tétrault has added veteran energy transactional lawyer John E. Piasta to its Calgary office in the Business Law and Energy groups.

John is a highly skilled and well regarded M&A and capital markets practitioner, working with major players in the energy industry. His transactional expertise and knowledge of capital markets make him a respected and strategic advisor to senior corporate decision makers, helping them raise capital and stay competitive while growing to meet the demands of the global energy transition.

John advises issuers and investment dealers on public and private debt and equity offerings, regulatory compliance, and financial services. Public and private entities retain him for ongoing corporate and securities law compliance, as well as corporate governance and security-holder matters. In M&A, John guides clients through the legal and business nuances of both corporate and asset acquisitions and dispositions.

“We’re always looking for opportunities to enhance our service offerings for clients both nationally and regionally,” said Brett Anderson, Regional Managing Partner for Alberta. “John is a fantastic lawyer and a perfect fit for our team and clients. His skill in M&A and capital markets is exceptional and his intimate knowledge of Alberta’s energy sector make him a highly sought after advisor and strategist. We’re all looking forward to working together.”
