Experienced legal counsel is essential to the successful completion of all mergers and acquisitions transactions, ranging from local start-ups to global conglomerates.
Members of our Corporate Finance and Corporate and Business groups have considerable experience negotiating and completing mergers and acquisitions of public and private companies. We regularly advise on transactions ranging from privately negotiated transfers of shares or assets to public company mergers and acquisitions completed by way of take-over bid, amalgamation and plan of arrangement. Members of our Corporate Finance group have experience preparing for and defending take-over bids and reverse take-over bids.
We represent all types of businesses in M&A transactions, including buyers, sellers, targets, investment bankers, boards of directors, special committees and commercial banks providing acquisition financing.
Our M&A lawyers work closely with other practitioners throughout the firm to form a team dedicated to servicing our clients’ M&A needs, including tax, employment and labour, intellectual property and information technology, environmental, litigation, pensions and benefits.
