Lana is an accomplished environmental lawyer, litigator and a certified specialist in environmental law.
She advises clients on environmental considerations in acquisition and sale transactions, provides strategic solutions relating to contaminated sites and remediation, and helps to navigate the assessment, permit and environmental approval processes.
Lana regularly defends clients charged with environmental and regulatory offences under federal and provincial legislation, appeals remediation orders to the Ontario Land Tribunal (formerly the Environmental Review Tribunal), and regularly defends and prosecutes environmental litigation claims by landlords, tenants and property owners before the Ontario courts.
Her experience also includes advising Canadian and international companies as well as their directors and officers on liabilities and insurance coverage for environmental matters, as well as representation and warranty insurance in transactions.
An additional focus of Lana’s practice is on renewable-energy projects and public-private partnerships (PPPs). She provides specialized environmental and regulatory advice related to project agreements, and related documentation, in a broad range of project and infrastructure mandates, the vast majority of which involve brownfield sites.
