The banking and financial services industry continues to be one of the most complex and dynamic business sectors. With escalating regulatory requirements, constantly changing financial markets and an increasingly competitive environment, clients demand highly-skilled, timely and efficient legal counsel.

The WeirFould’s financial services team has extensive experience in acting for both lenders and borrowers across a variety of industries. Our financial services lawyers regularly advise small to large corporations (both public and private), as well as the major Canadian banks, trust and loan companies, insurance companies, credit unions, foreign financial institutions, municipalities, provincial and territorial governmental bodies, Crown corporations and school boards. Our experience includes domestic, cross-border and multi-jurisdictional transactions.

Our lawyers take a service-oriented and multi-disciplinary approach to matters, engaging professionals in other practice areas as needed (including corporate, labour, employment, securities, tax, real estate and insolvency & restructuring), so as to provide optimal service to our clients.
