Business Law

We routinely act for the buyers and sellers of established businesses, in both share and asset-based transactions. We also have extensive experience in a range of other corporate transactions, including incorporations (including professional incorporations), corporate reorganizations, continuances, wind-ups and amalgamations, and commercial financing.

We provide advice on estate freezes and tax planning, buy-sell agreements among shareholders, intercompany planning and the use of holding companies. We also advise on day-to-day operational matters (including commercial leasing and employee matters), succession planning, shareholder disputes, and issues relating to corporate governance and compliance.

We act as counsel to small and medium-sized businesses spanning a range of industries, including the fishery, manufacturing, technology and software development, agriculture, construction, property management and development, retail and insurance sectors.
