Partner Stuart MacGregor, who heads our Energy and Resources industry group, led our team which included special counsel Andrew Holmes, senior associate Jon Prentice and Lawyer Alex Davies. They worked alongside a team from Canadian firm Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP.

The Royalty Portfolio comprises 22 royalties, including on development, advanced exploration and exploration stage projects located predominantly in Canada, the United States, and Australia.
