Dickson Minto lands role alongside Proskauer Rose, A&O and Ashurst on $1.7bn ERM sale

The recent appetite of Canadian pension funds for high-quality assets was demonstrated again in June as Allen & Overy (A&O), Ashurst, Proskauer Rose and Dickson Minto all won roles on the off-market, bilateral sale of Environmental Resources Management (ERM) to OMERS Private Equity and the Alberta Investment Management Corporation (AIMCo).

The sale saw Charterhouse Capital Partners sell its stake in the $1.7bn business, turning to longstanding adviser Alastair Dickson from Dickson Minto, whose previous mandates for the private equity investment firm include acting on the company’s £1.35bn acquisition of Saga in 2004.
