Whether you are facing a “bet the company” decision or more of a daily operations challenge, our corporate commercial lawyers act as key business advisors providing timely, practical and strategic advice across a wide range of matters.
Working in one of our largest practice groups, our lawyers are first trained as generalists before they specialize in any given area of business law—unique among most large law firms. We believe a broad legal knowledge of the key business law issues affecting businesses and industries enables us to help our clients solve their legal problems–big or small–quickly and effectively.
Our clients rely upon our advice regarding capital raising, finance strategies, governance issues, succession planning, insourcing and outsourcing. Our lawyers assist with contract drafting and negotiations, securing regulatory approvals, agreements for joint ventures, and acquiring or selling aspects of a business. Specialists are available to advise on labour and employment matters, such as executive compensation, or intellectual property issues, such as trade secret protection and confidentiality agreements.
The key to our success is providing creative, business-minded solutions to our clients, whether they are sophisticated multi-national companies, large family-owned businesses or emerging companies. Understanding our clients’ businesses and the industries within which they operate is critical to what we do.
