Fasken Martineau hires new partner for mining team

Mining has been the outlier in an otherwise busy deals market, but there's a sense of optimism that the quiet times can't last.

Against that backdrop, law firm Fasken Martineau is adding to its mining team by hiring Alison Lacy, formerly of Torys LLP. Faskens has long had a strong specialty in international mining, and Ms. Lacy will be a partner in the firm's global mining group. In case the mining business does stay sleepy, she has experience in areas such as alternative energy and the electricity sector.
