For over a century, McInnes Cooper has advised Atlantic Canada’s forestry industry. Our experience and deep bench strength equips us to provide the comprehensive and sophisticated legal, business and government relations advice essential for long-term success.
Our team has helped large international companies build pulp and paper plants and sawmills, guiding them from concept through construction to completion, with knowledgeable advice and quality service. We have negotiated long-term fibre supply through Crown land leases, purchases of millions of acres of company-owned woodlands, billions of dollars’ worth of construction and equipment contracts, long-term electricity and natural gas supply contracts, and environmental permits. We’ve handled labour negotiations and provided informed corporate and tax advice on both a Canadian and an international level.
