Chris Bennett, Chair of Osler’s Financial Services Practice, is quoted in Lexpert’s “Infrastructure trends – cost and completion models evolving to reflect current realities” article saying “that while COVID-19 isn’t solely responsible for current trends in infrastructure negotiations, it did highlight some “significant gaps” in putting together contracts.”

Roger Gillott, a highly-respected litigation partner, is also quoted saying that “he initially noticed the construction and infrastructure industry moving from mediation to arbitration as a tool for settling disputes. Now, many of our clients are moving back to the courts.”

Osler’s National Construction and Infrastructure practice group has decades of experience advising clients on construction and infrastructure projects of all sizes. Working alongside our project finance and public-private partnership groups, we provide end-to-end coverage on all aspects of a project’s life cycle, from procurement and launch to completion and operation.
