McInnes Cooper bolsters Calgary presence as Wylie Spicer QC rejoins firm

December 10, 2014 -- Energy sector lawyer and former McInnes Cooper Managing Partner Wylie Spicer QC is rejoining the firm effective January 1, 2015. The long-time maritime law litigator and oil and gas lawyer will be based in Calgary, Alberta, joining fellow McInnes Cooper lawyer Peter Driscoll, already based in Calgary.  

Spicer has been working with an international law firm in recent years, building his practice in the emerging areas of deep seabed mining, international maritime law, the Arctic and offshore oil and gas. 

"Few Canadian firms have McInnes Cooper's level of expertise in this area,” said Spicer. “It's an increasingly valuable skill set, it's important to clients, and it has brought us back together in a meeting of the minds."

McInnes Cooper has been serving clients in Calgary and across Canada for many years. "We're excited to be able to enhance our Calgary presence through this match with Wylie's focus," said McInnes Cooper CEO and Managing Partner Ray Adlington. "Even though our offices are based in Atlantic Canada, our client reach is expanding geographically, so this is a great fit."
