Corporate Commercial Law

Our corporate lawyers provide timely expert advice on business transactions of all sizes and complexities - frequently with a cross-border perspective. We provide advice on business organization, capital structure, finance, growth, tax mitigation, liquidity and exit strategies. We also provide our corporate clients with practical legal solutions in the areas of mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures, partnerships, shareholder agreements, buy-outs, strategic alliances, licensing, patents and trademarks, marketing and distribution.

Generating Capital

We represent several global financial institutions and we understand the competitive business environment in which they operate. As a result we regularly guide Canadian and European companies which are seeking financing from traditional banks, government-sponsored and government-supported lending sources, and from alternative sources including corporate and individual investors, joint venturers, venture capitalists and off-balance sheet financiers.

Mergers and Acquisitions

Whether you are buying out a former competitor, expanding into a new market place or selling off a division, our corporate lawyers can help guide you through the necessary steps and protect your interests along the way.

European Business

We represent many European-based companies, ranging from small privately-held companies to multinational public companies in their business dealings in Canada. Our experience in this area includes servicing a wide array of industries including industrial manufacturing, food product manufacturers, consumer product manufacturers, distributors, financial institutions, automotive parts manufacturers, engineering firms and companies engaged in the renewable energy sector.
