Canadian firm Fasken Martineau has become the latest to benefit from the collapse of rival Heenan Blaikie, picking up seven employment lawyers and two corporate specialists in Montréal.
The firm announced the hire of employment partners Robert Dupont, Stéphane Fillion, Rhéaume Perreault and Simon Laberg, along with a team of three associates, as well as corporate partner Carl Bélanger and an associate.
DLA Piper had also been circling Heenan Blaikie in a bid to open in Canada, but failed to agree terms and pulled out of the talks.
The employment team joining Fasken Martineau bring experience in all areas of the field, including collective bargaining, litigation and corporate restructuring. Meanwhile Bélanger has a broad corporate and commercial practice across a range of sectors.
Heenan Blaikie’s collapse has also resulted in the creation of a Vancouver-based litigation outfit - Gall Legge Grant & Munroe - which has been set up by Heenan’s founder Roy Heenan.
