Gordon Cameron has joined Bennett Jones (US) LLP as principal in New York City.

He brings more than 15 years of experience working in New York in the areas of corporate finance, private equity and cross-border transactions where he has developed deep ties to New York’s business and legal communities.

“We grow where our clients need us and have been expanding our presence in key U.S. markets and areas of business, practising exclusively Canadian law,” said Hugh MacKinnon, chairman and chief executive officer of Bennett Jones. “Gordon is an outstanding corporate lawyer who is deeply integrated into New York’s business community. He’s a superb match for our clients.”

Cameron is originally from Vancouver and has almost 20 years of experience in corporate and securities law. He focuses on private equity, corporate finance, cross-border mergers and acquisitions and other cross-border matters.

“Investors and funds are looking for growth opportunities north of the border. I have a deep commitment to client success, fitting them with the right opportunity and providing practical and tailored Canadian legal advice. This is something I’ve been very passionate about as a Canadian lawyer in New York,” said Cameron.

The Bennett Jones (US) team practises Canadian law and supports U.S. and international clients, and its legal and financial advisers, on commercial transactions and investments in Canada.
