Borden Ladner Gervais LLP (BLG) announced the arrival of a new partner, Colin Yeo, in its Calgary office.

According to the firm’s press release, Yeo specializes in domestic and cross-border secured lending and project finance transactions.

“Colin has significant experience in syndicated and non-syndicated multicurrency financing as well as project financing,” said Stephen Redican, national group head of specialized business law. “He has a sharp understanding of many key industries, such as oil and gas, renewable energy, oilfield services, clean technology and Aboriginal lending, which will be beneficial to our clients.”

Yeo obtained his law degree from Osgoode Hall Law School and a BA in sociology/psychology from the University of Alberta before being called to the bar in 2003.

Prior to joining BLG, he was a partner and the department head of the banking and financial services group at another international law firm. He also served as in-house legal counsel at TD Bank providing legal support to the TD commercial banking, commercial national accounts and agricultural lending groups for the prairie provinces.
