McCarthy Tétrault once again leads infrastructure league tables

Toronto, January 31st, 2017 – For the third year in a row, McCarthy Tétrault is the leading Canadian law firm as ranked by Infrastructure Journal.

According to Infrastructure Journal’s 2016 year-end published league tables, McCarthy Tétrault ranked as the 1st Canadian law firm by value and deal count, and the 5th North American firm by deal count on the Global Legal Advisors table, with 37 deals worth US $16.9 billion: an increase of almost $7 billion over the previous year. The tables cover the oil and gas, renewables, power, transport, social and defence, water, telecoms and mining sectors.

While the total number of global infrastructure finance transactions fell compared to 2015, the total value increased from $748.04 billion in 2015 to $794.95 billion in 2016. The infrastructure finance market saw an increase in M&A activity during 2016 largely due to a surge of disposals in the oil and gas sector.

McCarthy Tétrault's projects practice is a recognized leader in Canada, advising on all aspects of project development and finance in the infrastructure, power, oil and gas, and mining sectors. In the last few years, we have acted on many of Canada's most significant projects, on behalf of a wide variety of interests both in North America and abroad.
