We advise on incorporations (as well as the implementation of fundamental changes, such as continuances and amalgamations) and the organization of other business entities, such as partnerships and joint ventures. We assist management in the creation and adoption of appropriate corporate governance principles as well as on board composition and board management.
Our lawyers are regularly called upon to advise management and boards of directors on a wide range of legal issues, to structure and negotiate transactions and to prepare the required documentation to implement the advice given. This advice may include obtaining necessary regulatory approvals (whether at the provincial or federal level), taxation strategies for structuring transactions and dealing with all of the related issues that typically arise in commercial transactions, such as intellectual property, real estate, employment and computer technology matters.
