Monday, September 10, 2018 @ 12:50 PM | By John Carson


McMillan LLP announced that William (Bill) Wu has rejoined the firm as a member of the competition group in its Toronto office, effective Sept. 10, 2018.

In other moves, associate Adam Gotfried joined the firm’s tax group on Sept. 5 in the Toronto office. Associate Keith Hanna joined the firm’s financial services group in the Montreal office on Sept. 4.

Wu received his juris doctorate from the University of Toronto Faculty of Law in 2014 and summered and articled with the firm. He was called to the Ontario bar in 2015.

Prior to returning to McMillan, Wu practised competition and foreign investment review law with a prominent national firm. He acted for clients on merger reviews, supplementary information requests (where he has obtained particularly notable experience for his age and stage), competition litigation, internal investigations and consumer protection matters.

Gotfried received his bachelor of laws from the University of British Columbia, was first called to the B.C. bar in 2009 and became a member of the Law Society of Ontario in 2014.  

He spent the first five years of his career honing his tax litigation skills with the Tax Law Services division of the federal Department of Justice. During his time working for the Department of Justice, Gotfried became one of the government’s leading experts on rectification matters. More recently, he continued his career working with a law firm affiliated with one of the large accounting firms.

Hanna received his bachelor of laws from the University of Ottawa and was called to the Quebec bar in 2006.

Among other things, Hanna has acted for clients on matters including producing and negotiating loan offers, credit arrangements, financing documents and intercreditor agreements. He also spent more than 10 years with a provincial financing corporation advising on transactions related to corporate funding, equity investment, aircraft financing, bankruptcy and insolvency, as well as international matters.
