Sunny Handa, a lawyer formerly with Fasken Martineau DuMoulin, has accepted a position with Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP within its technology and communications practices. Handa came to mainstream national attention as the lawyer guiding JumpTV.com Canada Inc. through its recent retransmission battles. He tells CNM that it’s not certain JumpTV will follow him to the new firm as a client. Handa’s role as a professor at McGill University remains unchanged. His assistant, Carole Essiembre, will join Handa at Blakes, as will his colleague Marie-Hélène Constantin.
