We are able to provide a full range of corporate law services to your business. We can advise you on setting up your corporate structure and ensure that the proper procedures are followed for the incorporation or registration of your business entity, federally or provincially, and can assist you in extra-provincial, extra-territorial, or international registrations or incorporations. We can assist you in setting up partnerships, general and limited, syndications, or trusts. We have extensive experience, both domestically and internationally, in continuations or changes of domicile to other jurisdictions (such as the United States, Bermuda or the Cayman Islands). We will work closely with your tax and other professional advisors in designing and implementing the most appropriate and tax efficient corporate structure for your business or corporate transactions.
We can assist you in maintaining required corporate records, preparing annual and special proxy materials, chairing shareholders’ meetings, organizing or defending proxy contests, and making the required filings to ensure compliance with the relevant corporate and securities statutes and regulations. We assist corporations in developing codes of business ethics, corporate governance and communications policies, as well as provide advice to Boards, senior management and special committees on corporate governance issues and related party transactions. We have experience in technology and intellectual property transfers, distribution, licensing, and royalty agreements, as well as software development agreements. We also prepare general security agreements and other security instruments, and handle the required registrations under applicable personal property security or similar legislation.
