Georgia-based Troutman Sanders is looking for opportunity north of the border. The firm has announced formation of a 19-member “Canadian practice team” to be led by Virginia Beach partner Tom Rose.
Apparently, no Canadian office is planned, but Troutman hopes to represent Canadian businesses in the areas of securities and corporate governance; mergers and acquisitions; immigration; international trade; energy; intellectual property; and energy trading, hedging and marketing.
A seminar for Canadian companies is planned this month in Ottawa.
