Associate, Corporate Commercial / Energy

Our Corporate Commercial / Energy group at Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP (Blakes) is growing.  Blakes is widely regarded as the market leader for corporate commercial / energy sector matters, and we are looking for Associates with one to three years of experience to join the Calgary office in this practice area.

Across Canada and around the world, business is becoming increasingly complex and competitive. Blakes has been trusted for many years to provide advice to leading businesses in Canada and worldwide. Our Corporate & Commercial team provides strategic legal advice, particularly on complex negotiated mandates both within Canada and internationally.

Our Corporate & Commercial team includes specialists with experience and insight into every key industry sector in Canada including the oil and gas and power sectors.

Unprecedented challenges call for innovative solutions. Fluctuating commodity prices, rapidly changing regulatory regimes, supply corridor constraints and continuous improvement in technology create a global storm of energy sector volatility.

The expert oil and gas lawyers at Blakes have the experience and depth of knowledge to navigate our clients through that storm. We act for a client base with a broad range of  industry involvement starting at the project conception to the final sale to consumers, including exploration and production companies, refining, supply and trading companies, transportation and marketing companies, power generation and transmission companies,  industry financiers and other stakeholders. We have managed M&A transactions, competition and environmental hearings, regulatory applications, and ownership and operational issues for a wide range of national and international players in the energy industry.

Headquartered in our Calgary office but with practitioners across Canada and worldwide, our Oil & Gas group brings an extraordinary degree of global awareness to the strategic and tactical advice we provide our clients. We provide counsel that is fully informed by the potential and limitations of both conventional and unconventional sources and methods of energy access, today and in the future.
