We act for both issuers and the firms and funds that finance them. The financing of growth businesses differs in size and character, from both traditional bank financings and large equity offerings. We offer practical and innovative advice to investors and issues, borrowers and banks or other lenders, investment banks and investment dealers.

Mezzanine debt, venture capital and angel investments are unique to growth businesses and we are unique in acting for a number of active mezzanine debt and venture capital firms in Western Canada

Key areas of practice include the following:

  • private placements and public offerings
  • secured and/or convertible debt financing
  • public and private equity and venture investments
  • tax-advantaged financings such as flow though share offerings
  • syndicated loans
  • mezzanine debt financings

After the transaction we remain active in monitoring its impact and resolving the issues that arise from both the success or failure of the underlying business. Because of our partners’ close involvement with the business, if difficulties arise they are already familiar with the deal, the personalities and the contingency planning.
