Gowling WLG announced the appointment of Calgary-based partner Lorne Rollheiser as head of its Canadian oil and gas group.

According to Gowling’s press release, Rollheiser has over 20 years of experience practising in natural resources and energy law — including as in-house counsel with two of North America’s largest independent oil and gas producers. Working closely with domestic and international exploration and production clients, he focuses his practice on a range of complex energy-related matters associated with the planning, development and execution of upstream and midstream projects.

In his new role, Rollheiser will lead the team in expanding and strengthening the firm’s oil and gas practice across Canada. “In recent years, we’ve seen new areas emerging in the energy sector, including hydrogen and geothermal energy, as well as a focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors that have all had a huge impact on oil and gas companies,” Rollheiser said in the news release. “Our team is well-positioned to help our clients navigate these new opportunities and provide them with the innovative long-term solutions essential to the growth and success of their business.”
