We represent clients throughout all stages of the capital-raising cycle, including seed and venture capital funding and private equity investment through to initial public offerings (IPOs). We also regularly advise on IPOs, secondary offerings, rights issues, follow-on offerings and private placements, as well as equity-linked transactions. In addition, we draw on team members with specialized experience to counsel our clients on tax issues, corporate governance and regulatory compliance matters associated with equity offerings. 

Clients have sought our representation in connection with listings on all Canadian stock exchanges, including the Toronto Stock Exchange, the TSX Venture Exchange and the Canadian National Stock Exchange.
