Practice Areas

Marianne has extensive experience in the areas of public procurement, public infrastructure, construction and public-private partnerships.

Her practice is focused primarily on procurement law and she regularly advises both public and private sector clients on complex procurement processes, the development of organization-wide procurement policies that comply with the trade agreements and other organization-specific procurement obligations and the drafting of template procurement documentation.

Marianne has emerged as a leading expert on the procurement chapters of the newest trade agreements to which Canada is a party and is routinely called upon by clients to conduct in-house training on best practices and to assist in the implementation of new procurement templates.

She regularly advises owner-side clients across Canada on the development, preparation and ongoing administration of public tenders and procurement processes, and the development, negotiation and subsequent interpretation or enforcement of commercial agreements for the design, construction, financing, operation and maintenance of infrastructure. She has led a wide range of construction transactions to engage the private sector across numerous asset classes including energy, building construction, water/wastewater, transportation and transit. She has served as the lead partner on numerous projects in the last five years including over 10 municipal infrastructure procurement projects.
