Who We Are

We are business lawyers based in Vancouver.

Since 1966, hundreds of companies have relied on us to structure and coordinate their corporate finance and M&A deals, from start-ups to complex international “company maker” transactions.

We act for growth-focused companies, both private and public, in a variety of industries, including energy, food and beverage, industrial, life sciences, mining and technology.

Our lawyers combine deep transactional experience and big firm expertise to provide the personal, timely and efficient services of a specialized boutique firm.

Our clients benefit from our strong relationships with investors, regulators, stock exchanges, underwriters and other industry professionals.

Whether our clients need assistance with day-to-day corporate matters or sophisticated transactional advice, we deliver cost effective, tailored legal solutions.

Simply put, we get the job done.
