Business Law

Conducting business in Canada has never been more dynamic and competitive. Business owners must constantly adapt to emerging technologies, an ever-evolving regulatory framework and fluctuating market conditions.  

Our highly experienced team of business lawyers are here to guide you through the often intricate legal environment that your organization faces. We take the time to understand your organization’s objectives and challenge the notion that business is not personal. We view business as being built on personal relationships and recognize the importance of having trusted legal counsel by your side from the outset.  

Our clients range from small, family-owned businesses to large multi-national corporations. We have been by our clients’ side from the beginning stages of incorporation. We assist our clients with day-to-day business operations, negotiating and drafting agreements that will achieve an organization’s future growth objectives, completing complex corporate reorganizations and negotiating deals for the sale or acquisitions of businesses. We are deeply involved in various aspects of our client’s operations and take great pride in the continued growth and success of their businesses.

We provide legal advice and services in various areas of corporate and commercial law, including the following areas:

  • Acquisition and sale transactions, including share purchase and asset purchase transactions;
  • Tax-driven corporate reorganizations, amalgamations, share structure alterations and dissolutions;
  • Ownership agreements, including shareholders’ agreements, partnership agreements, co-ownership agreements and joint venture agreements;
  • Corporate governance, including shareholder and director meetings; and
  • General contract matters, including distribution, licensing, employment and independent contractor agreements, consulting, marketing, service, supply and manufacturing agreements.
