Issuers, investors and underwriters draw upon the hybrid set of skills and experience of our corporate finance team. Our clients include public, private and institutional entities, from emerging companies to established multinationals, investment and merchant banks to venture capitalists, provincial governments to foreign exchanges, and hedge funds to pension funds.

Our clients include companies in the oil and gas, telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing and power industries, to name a few. Our capital-raising efforts have involved prospectus offerings and private placements of equity and debt securities in Canada and internationally. Specific transaction experience includes MJDS offerings, cross-border IPOs, subscription receipts, high-yield debt offerings and financings by royalty trusts and income funds.

As part of our ongoing relationships with clients, we also advise on a variety of risk management, corporate governance and disclosure obligations that require us to interact with securities and exchange commissions, as well as boards of directors, compliance teams, investor relations professionals and shareholders. Leveraging our firm-wide resources, we bring effective communication and seamless integration to the task of helping our clients navigate the complex securities regulatory environment in which they operate.
