Lexpert View original

Torkin Manes was named a Lexpert 2021 Excellence Awardee for M&A Deal of the Year for the firms' involvement in the Berkshire Partners Investment in VetStrategy.

This deal is remarkable not only for taking six weeks to complete from start to finish but also taking place in late spring and early summer in the middle of a pandemic. Berkshire Partners acquired the majority stake in VetStrategy from Imperial Capital, putting it in a prime position to take advantage of the boom in pet ownership because of the pandemic.

Canadian Law Firm Involvement

  • Torkin Manes LLP (VetStrategy)
  • Borden Ladner Gervais LLP (BLG) (VetStrategy - Quebec Counsel)
  • Goodmans LLP (Berkshire Partners LLC)
  • Osler Hoskin & Harcourt LLP (lenders)
  • Torys LLP (Imperial Capital)

This year, Lexpert named 26 deals in five categories (capital markets, infrastructure and project financing, insolvency and restructuring, mid-market deals, and M&A) as Excellence Awardees.

Hundreds of submissions from firms and legal departments across Canada were received during the nomination phase. To see the full list of Excellence Awardees, please visit the Lexpert website.
