Francois Tougas, a partner in the Vancouver office, discusses the reasons why he nominated Peter Rozee, senior vice president commercial and legal affairs at Teck Resources, for the Western Canada General Counsel of the Year award in the November 14, 2011 edition of Canadian Lawyer.

"He's smart, humble, and easy to work with. It's a wicked combination," says Tougas, noting Rozee originally declined to be nominated. "This is a guy who drives M&A deals, co-ordinates counsel, and does a lot of the legal work himself. He's operating at a whole different level than most GCs. A lot of GCs look like traffic cops. They get in litigation problems and then decide whom it should go to. That's not the way Peter operates. His footprint is all over that place."
