Business from start to finish.

Legal Contracts

Client focused negotiation

At every step in the process, our lawyers endeavour to use negotiation to facilitate an agreement in line with client goals and interests. In other words, we can assist in getting the deal done properly, without getting in the way. 

Shareholder Agreements

Avoiding common issues

We work to go beyond the boiler-plate agreement terms to achieve the client's real business purposes, and to avoid an agreement that creates problems down the road. 


Corporate Reorganizations

cooperating with accountants

We work closely with the accountants to produce documents quickly in order to meet the deadlines that always apply to reorganizations. Our focus is to get the documents done correctly, on time, and at a reasonable price. 

Asset/Share Transactions

Minimum Interference

Whether acting for the buyer or the seller, our aim is to promote a smooth transaction in which our client retains control of what is done and when; we manage closing no more than is needed to accomplish that goal.
