Canadian litigator and arbitrator Jack Marshall has set up an independent practice in Calgary focusing on disputes in the energy, securities and corporate and commercial sectors.
His decision to start his own firm was prompted by the merger between Macleod Dixon, where he had practised for 45 years, and Norton Rose. Of his old firm, Marshall says “I shall always treasure the experience of working with excellent lawyers, dedicated staff and terrific clients.”
Marshall’s past engagements include sitting as sole arbitrator, party-appointed arbitrator and chair in a variety of international and domestic matters.
Bill Tuer, partner at Norton Rose’s Calgary office, said: “Jack Marshall was one of the great leaders of the former Macleod Dixon and the Canadian arbitration practice as a whole. We are very appreciative of his talent which, along with our recent international expansion, has helped us to build our reputation in this area. We will continue to work together in the future and we wish him well.”
Marshall will continue to work with Norton Rose as co-counsel in domestic and international matters. He is listed in The International Who’s Who of Commercial Litigators.
