On March 26, 1996, the Alberta Court of Appeal ruled that Canadian Association of Petroleum Landmen regulations regarding general operating procedures took precedence over prepared agreements between parties.  The dispute arose over the right of first refusal to purchase an interest in an oil well in Alberta. 

McCarthy Tétrault LLP successfully argued this case, at both levels of court, with a team led by Mendy  Chernos.
