Canadian Lawyer Magazine quotes Toronto lawyers Brad Freelan and Krisztián Tóth in an article on global mining and mergers and acquisitions sectors.
The global mining sector has been hit by the Covid-19 pandemic, like many other sectors, but Canadian mergers and acquisitions have soldiered on this year as the price of gold and other metals have climbed since the beginning of the year, say Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP partners Brad Freelan and Krisztian Toth.
Fasken’s M&A group ranks #1 in the Canadian Mid-Year 2020 league tables, and the firm topped Mergermarket and Refinitiv (formerly Thomson Reuters) M&A lists by deal count.
“It’s quite an exciting time in the mining sector,” says Toth. “Given the current market sentiment, we see M&A continuing at a faster pace.”
Freelan adds: “We’re still watching this play out, but I think we’ll see more M&A activity going forward.”
