Canada: Americas Derivatives Awards Names - BLG "Canada Law Firm Of The Year"
Last Updated: April 30 2014

I am pleased to announce that Global Capital named BLG "Canada Law Firm of the Year" at its first ever Americas Derivatives Awards held this week in New York City. 

BLG was selected over four other finalists in recognition of our impact on the global derivatives market within the last year. The Americas Derivatives Awards honoured individuals, firms and deals in thirty different categories and the winners were chosen by Global Capital's editorial board. 

"Borden Ladner Gervais was the stand out law firm in Canada following interviews conducted by editorial members of Global Capital with senior sellside and buyside officials in the country," said Robert McGlinchey, Editor of Global Capital Derivatives. "From the interviews, Borden Ladner Gervais was singled out among its competitors for not only its regulatory expertise in Canada, but across the Americas, as well as for its derivatives knowledge in transactions across equity, fx, interest rates and commodities."

The Canadian derivatives market is preparing for changes to regulatory oversight as a result of Canada's G20 commitments.  In addition to the new Canadian derivative rules that are being proposed and implemented by the Canadian securities regulatory authorities, many Canadian derivative market participants also need to comply with new derivative legislation in the U.S., Europe and elsewhere.
BLG's Derivatives Group continues to be well positioned to advise you in this new arena due to their international experience in both OTC and exchange-traded derivatives. As a strong multi-disciplinary team, they are poised to guide you through this increasingly complicated financial environment. The Americas Derivatives Awards acknowledge the strategic value our Derivatives team provides to our clients and they recognize the knowledge and strengths of these leading lawyers.

Please join me in extending congratulations to the entire Derivatives Group on this well-deserved recognition.

Best regards,

Sean Weir 
National Managing Partner & CEO
