Last Updated: February 21 2017

Toronto (February 8, 2017) — Borden Ladner Gervais LLP (BLG) is pleased to announce it has been recognized in Lexpert®'s Top 10 Deals and Business Decisions of 2016.

BLG is recognized by Lexpert ® for its involvement in one of the top 10 deals of 2016. BLG was named a key legal player in the acquisition of Shaw Media Inc. by Corus Entertainment Inc. BLG acted for the Corus Special Committee in a deal that saw Corus Entertainment Inc. acquire Shaw Media Inc. from Shaw Communications Inc. (SCI) for C$2.65 billion through a combination of cash and Corus Class B Shares. The transaction resulted in Corus's ownership of all of Shaw Media's leading brands, including 45 specialty and 15 conventional television channels and 39 radio stations. The BLG team was led by Frank Callaghan and included Philippe Tardif and Laura Costen.

Lexpert® quotes BLG's Martin Sclisizzi, counsel in BLG's Commercial Litigation Group, on one of the top 10 business decisions of 2016, Endean v. BC; Parsons v. Ontario (SCC, OCA). The decision supports the advance of multijurisdictional national class proceedings, but questions remain as to the extent to which such proceedings can be efficiently managed and adjudicated prior to settlement.
