Osler picks up infrastructure lawyer from McMillan

McMillan LLP has lost a lawyer from a prominent practice group that concentrates on infrastructure financing and public-private partnerships – a growth area in recent years as governments grow increasingly comfortable with so-called P3s to build megaprojects.

The firm’s Chris Bennett has left for Osler Hoskin & Harcourt LLP, where he will head his new firm’s project finance group in Toronto. Osler announced the move on Tuesday. Mr. Bennett has acted for clients involved involved in the financing for many major infrastructure projects, including hospitals, schools and roads.
