He also has experience in renewable energy financing projects, including solar, co-gen and retrofit projects.
Fleisher has previously been recognized as a leader in his field by such authorities as Best Lawyers in Canada and the Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory and was recently named as one of the 40 most influential equipment finance lawyers in North America by Leasing News.
Several other members of Cassels’ banking team were also recognized by Best Lawyers this year, including Jason Arbuck, Alison Manzer, Scott McLeman, Marc Mercier, Charles Newman, Carla Potter, Chuck Rich, Peter Sullivan, Jennifer Wasylyk and Kori Williams.
