Cassels Brock Continues Strategic Expansion in Alberta

Josef Hocher and Kenton Rein Join Firm's Calgary Office

CALGARY, Nov. 2, 2016 /CNW/ - Cassels Brock is pleased to announce the continued expansion of its platform in Alberta. The firm welcomes prominent lawyers Josef Hocher and Kenton Rein to its Calgary office. Both partners are well-respected as legal and business advisors to their clients.

"Both Kenton and I recognize this is a unique opportunity in our careers to build a new, highly-entrepreneurial approach to the provision of legal advice in the Calgary business community," Joe notes. "With the support and experience of our new colleagues at Cassels Brock - and those we expect to add in the coming months - we have a renewed commitment to the success of our clients and the industries we serve."

Joe draws on over 20 years of legal and business expertise and represents Canadian, U.S. and international clients in complex, strategic and business critical transactions and corporate governance matters related to the oil and gas, electrical and technology industries in North and Central America and elsewhere around the world.

Kenton's practice focuses on financial services, project finance and mergers and acquisitions. He acts for financial institutions and borrowers in cross-border financial services transactions and for both purchasers and vendors in M&A transactions. Kenton has been recognized as a leader in the area of infrastructure and projects by The Legal Canada 500.

"The addition of Joe and Kenton to our Calgary office further exemplifies the firm's commitment to building a strong team in Alberta and nationally," says Mark Young, Managing Partner at Cassels Brock. "Their experience with the issues facing our clients, and understanding of what is required to meet these challenges, only serves to enhance the level of service we can offer."

The Calgary office of Cassels Brock opened in April 2016 with an aim to build on the firm's global reputation as a leader in mining by adding expertise in the oil and gas sector to fully service the natural resources industry and to expand its capability in the financial services sector to better serve Alberta clients and execute on national mandates.
