Corporate and Business Services

We have participated at the inception of hundreds of new businesses. We take the time to understand our clients, their businesses and their goals so that we can create the corporate and transactional structures most conducive to success. We structure clients' enterprises to efficiently contribute to their business while facilitating the most likely financing and exit scenarios.

Our corporate and business services include advice on the following:

  • structuring corporations, including customizing articles of incorporation, by-laws, shareholder agreements and trusts
  • structuring partnerships and joint ventures
  • corporate governance measures
  • agreements among principle shareholders
  • corporate record maintenance


In the later stages of our clients' businesses, we advise on corporate acquisitions of all types: take-overs, amalgamations, asset sales and purchases, licenses and joint ventures. Because so many growth companies go public in Canada, we have particular expertise in developing restructuring plans that efficiently accommodate securities and exchange regulations.
