VANCOUVER, Nov. 10, 2015 /CNW/ - Cassels Brock congratulates all those recognized at last night's Western Canada General Counsel Awards gala held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver, honouring the very best in the Western Canadian legal community.
We are particularly proud to congratulate our clients Charlene Ripley of Goldcorp Inc. and Curt Bernardi of Silver Wheaton Corp.
Charlene won in the category of Western Canada General Counsel of the Year, a category that represents the very best of what this profession stands for. In selecting the General Counsel of the Year, the advisory board looks for excellence, the ability to deal with complexity across both issues and jurisdictions and a sure-handedness in dealing with whatever challenges are faced.
Curt took home honours in the Deal Making category for his work with Silver Wheaton Corp. Deal Makers are judged on their creativity, broad technical excellence and having the dexterity necessary to get complex deals successfully completed.
We are also thrilled to see Anne Giardini, board member of our client Thompson Creek Metals Company Inc., recognized in the Lifetime Achievement category. This category honours those that have made a lasting contribution to both the legal and business communities.
The WCGCA, sponsored by The National Post and ZSA Legal Recruitment, is Canada's only national programme to exclusively recognize excellence in the In-House Counsel community.
