Businesses are always changing, but the desire to be served by trusted, long-term advisers is a constant. Our lawyers are proud to serve this role for our clients, including established Canadian and international public companies, financial institutions, start-ups, growth-oriented companies and other capital market participants, and everything in between. Our goal is to thoroughly understand our clients’ business objectives so we can help them get where they want to go.

WeirFoulds has deep expertise handling all aspects of corporate and commercial transactions, from assisting with routine matters to handling complex transactions. We are well versed at assisting our clients with compliance, corporate governance, commercial contracts, mergers, acquisitions, restructurings, joint ventures, debt and equity financings, initial public offerings (IPOs), prospectus offerings, private placements, stock exchange matters such as original listings, reverse take-overs and capital pool companies, take-over bids and defences, corporate reorganizations, investment funds and asset management, private equity and venture capital funds and investments, and income trusts.

Our clients benefit from our focus on delivering tactical business and legal advice that is paired with the technical expertise that comes with our multi-disciplinary approach. As we operate in all industry sectors, including natural resources, technology, cannabis, energy, construction, utilities, industrial products, and financial services, we regularly engage our securities, tax, privacy, information technology, intellectual property, competition and real property lawyers on our corporate files to ensure clients receive advice that is tailored to their needs.

We offer an unrelenting focus on delivering value-added, tactical business and legal advice, in addition to our deep understanding of the business and regulatory environment in which our clients operate.
