Three of McMillan’s Leading Lawyers Teach P3 at Osgoode as Fall Returns

News Oct 16, 2023

Three of McMillan’s leading Construction and Infrastructure lawyers are key presenters in the Certification Program on Public-Private Partnership P3 Law and Practice in Canada offered this fall as part of Osgoode Hall’s premier construction programs. Osgoode Hall Law School is one of Canada’s largest and most respected law schools, with education that offers both academic rigour and firsthand legal experience.

As thought leaders in the field, our lawyers Jason J. Annibale, Julie Han and Ahsan Mirza are excited to offer their expertise to legal, commercial and technical professionals. Our lawyers will educate participants on dealing with the key risks and challenges of all phases of a P3 project. Offering a strong complement of theoretical and practical knowledge, these lawyers’ leadership will advance the profession’s ability to offer all P3 stakeholders real-time business solutions.

McMillan’s Contributions

Jason J. Annibale is an advisory board member for the P3 certification program. He will be co-chairing the module relating to “Managing and Resolving Disputes” as well as presenting on “Formal Dispute Resolution Mechanisms: Arbitration and Litigation” to students. Jason will also be facilitating the interactive activity “Working Through a Project Dispute.”

A co-leader of McMillan’s Construction & Infrastructure Group, Jason is recognized as one of Canada’s leading construction, infrastructure and energy lawyers. He acts in highly complex construction law disputes and sophisticated project finance transactions for clients throughout the construction pyramid, including authorities, special purpose vehicles, lenders, contractors and owners.

Julie Han, also a co-leader of McMillan’s Construction & Infrastructure Group, is speaking on “The Procurement Process and the Key Players from Start to Commercial Close.” In her practice, Julie advises on every aspect of financial services law, including on all types of syndicated and complex bilateral transactions, with particular expertise and focus on project financing transactions. Julie’s extensive experience in project finance includes assisting private sector partners, finance parties and major contractors on infrastructure assets across all asset classes and in multiple jurisdictions across Canada.

Ahsan Mirza is also speaking on “The Procurement Process and the Key Players from Start to Commercial Close” with Julie as well as “Understanding the Landscape of Canadian Infrastructure” on his own. Ahsan is a financial services and banking lawyer with particular expertise in project finance. His practice focuses on public-private partnerships (P3), public infrastructure, and secured and syndicated lending projects with extensive experience in project development and financing in the construction and energy sectors. Ahsan has played a leading role in several high-profile Canadian project finance and infrastructure transactions.
