Osler Hoskin & Harcourt has brought in two new partners to spearhead its burgeoning digital assets and blockchain practice. Matthew Burgoyne and Laure Fouin will be co-chairs of the group, which will be part of the Canadian firm’s corporate and emerging high-growth teams.

The firm sees a “long-term opportunity” and realizes the area isn’t a passing fad, said Burgoyne. “The establishment of the two co-chairs nationally is a strategic move by Osler to further cement their presence in the industry in Canada.”
