Within our Business Law Group, we have extensive experience with Corporate Finance, especially private equity and venture capital. Our Group assists clients with strategic planning, structuring and implementing transactions, including private placements and public offerings of securities, mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, corporate reorganizations, and capital pool company (CPC) transactions.
We advise clients on securities legislation as well as the rules and policies of stock exchanges and self-regulatory organizations, such as the Toronto Stock Exchange and the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC). We assist clients with corporate and securities compliance issues, such as disclosure obligations of issuers and individuals, and shareholder meetings. We also act for issuers seeking stock exchange listings and for individuals and corporations on registration and registrant compliance matters. We act as counsel for many foreign clients in Canadian aspects of public transactions and clients in other Canadian jurisdictions, with respect to Ontario corporate and securities matters. In conjunction with our Litigation Group, we also represent aggrieved investors and shareholders in securities litigation matters.
