Les Affaires quotes Montréal lawyer Éric Bédard in an article providing an overview of the past year for the firm.
In 2019, Fasken benefited from strong growth in private equity funds. “We assisted a number of clients both in creating certain funds of this nature and in deploying their capital,” explained Éric Bédard, Managing Director for the Quebec region.
The firm also held several substantial mandates for transactions and financing. Fasken advised Air Canada in connection with the purchase of Aimia’s Aeroplan loyalty activities and also advised Air Transat in connection with its sale to Air Canada. The firm assisted Quebecor Media whose subsidiary Vidéotron’s 4Degrees Colocation data centres were acquired by Vantage Data Centers.
