After working closely with Vancouver-based Alterra Power Corp. as outside counsel, Shannon Webber is taking over as general counsel. She replaces Rupert Legge, who recently retired.
She was previously with Borden Ladner Gervais, where she focused on securities, finance, M&A and project-related matters for power and mining companies.
“We are excited to have Shannon join our team,” John Carson, Alterra’s chief executive officer, said in a statement. “She worked with us extensively last year and proved herself as a strong and experienced transactional lawyer. Likewise she knows our company very well. Shannon will play an important role in helping us through our next phase of growth in 2014.”
