Mining deals prop up Cassels Brock Add to ...

Cassels Brock & Blackwell may not be one of Canada's Seven Sisters, a term for the country's biggest law firms, but it certainly has been advising like one in the past few weeks.

Mining deals have taken off as resource prices soar, and that's been good news for the firm. Of the three big deals announced last week, Cassels Brock advised on two of them -- acting for Lundin Mining Corp. in its $9-billion merger with Inmet Mining Corp. and advising Consolidated Thompson Iron Mines's board in its $4.7-billion takeover by Cliffs Natural Resources.

In December, Cassels Brock also advised on Franco-Nevada's purchase of Gold Wheaton and for Eike Batista's $1.2-billion takeover bid for Ventana Gold Corp.

Last week the firm hired John Tsiofas as chief operating officer. He was previously a management consultant at Kraft Kennedy, Inc. in New York City.
