Cox & Palmer is pleased to announce that our counsel, Wayne Myles, QC, has been named one of Canada’s 25 Most Influential Lawyers by Canadian Lawyer. This prestigious award acknowledges preeminent lawyers who influence the laws, justice system, legal profession, and civil society in Canada and abroad. Wayne is one of only five corporate and commercial lawyers so honoured.

While firmly based in Atlantic Canada, Wayne has developed a practice that is the envy of many, leading debt financings and merger and acquisition transactions spanning the globe, representing multiple US$billions in transaction value. Most recently Wayne, supported by his Cox & Palmer team of Atlantic Canadian lawyers, led the sale of Barbados-based Columbus International Inc. to UK-based Cable & Wireless PLC, in a deal that spanned over 40 countries.

“We’re proud to have Wayne as part of our team, and pleased to congratulate him on this significant accomplishment. It reflects his high level of leadership and experience,” stated Alexander MacDonald, QC, managing partner of Cox & Palmer’s St. John’s office.

George Cooper, managing partner of Cox & Palmer’s New Brunswick offices, noted the unique nature of the commendation, and is “delighted to congratulate Wayne on earning his place among this very distinguished and exclusive group.”
