On March 9, 2005, Noranda Inc. announced an all-encompassing plan to combine Noranda and Falconbridge Limited to create one of North America’s largest base-metals companies. The transaction was proposed to help resolve the dual public ownership structure of Noranda and Falconbridge, and brought Noranda’s strategic alternatives review process to a close.

McCarthy Tétrault advised Noranda with a team that was led by Garth Girvan.
