What the team is known for

Blake, Cassels & Graydon is a market-leading independent Canadian law firm with strong full-service capabilities and teams highly adept in advising clients on cross-border matters. It benefits from strong teams across Canadian centres and representative offices in New York, London and Beijing, as well as its close relationships with local firms. The law firm provides deep resources and specialist expertise across transactional, contentious and industry sectors, making it a strong choice for inbound work and a proficient coordinator of international mandates for major Canadian clients.
The law firm provides nationwide reach for inbound matters across provinces, and has leading practitioners in mining capital markets, financing and M&A. It offers strong mining sector knowledge and is a regular choice for US firms and clients conducting business in the Canadian mining sector. The law firm often assists clients with the transactional aspects of projects in Latin America and Africa, as well as mergers, acquisitions and financings undertaken by Canadian and global mining corporations.

Strengths

Sources praise the law firm's "consistent level of excellence," further adding: "Key to this is their familiarity with cross-border work that extends beyond the US and globally. They are comfortable working on sophisticated international transactions."

Notable practitioners
