Infrastructure partner, Tara Mackay, moves to New York Office
TORONTO, May 9, 2013 /CNW/ - Torys is pleased to announce that Tara Mackay transferred from our Toronto office to our New York office effective May 1, 2013. Tara will continue her infrastructure and public-private partnerships (P3) practice from New York, advising clients on major capital projects in the Unites States, Canada and internationally.
Tara is a partner in our Infrastructure and Energy Group and a key member of our P3 practice. She has acted on over 30 P3 projects as well as energy, mining and other major capital projects. Tara is now our key contact partner in New York for P3 matters, and she joins the team of over 50 U.S.-called Torys lawyers available to assist clients involved in projects in the United States.
"We are following our existing clients and relationships into the expanding U.S. P3 market", said Mark Bain, head of the Torys P3 practice and co-head of the Infrastructure and Energy Group. "Tara is a highly respected infrastructure lawyer and, with her move to our New York office, we believe we offer a compelling proposition to help our clients succeed in U.S. infrastructure and P3 transactions."
The global infrastructure market has expanded significantly and more growth is on the horizon with tens of trillions of dollars of new infrastructure projects expected in the next 20 years. The Canadian P3 market has recently been one of the most active in the world, with 180 projects valued at over $60 billion now completed or underway, and the U.S. P3 market is expanding strongly. As the U.S. P3 market gains momentum, Torys expertise in Canada and our established U.S. infrastructure platform will allow us to provide current, practical and market-tested advice on U.S. P3 transactions.
"We have been active representing clients in the U.S. infrastructure markets, particularly in secondary transactions", said Phil Brown, managing partner of Torys' New York office. "Having Tara on the ground will expand our transactional breadth and depth in offering advice on P3 and other greenfield infrastructure transactions."
Torys LLP is a highly respected international business law firm with a reputation for quality, creativity and teamwork. The firm's record of experience combined with the insight and imagination we bring to our work has made us our clients' choice for their large and complex transactions, projects and major disputes on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border and internationally.
