Blakes advises on M&A transactions involving Canadian companies around the world. For the past 10 years (2010-2019), we have been the No. 1 Canadian law firm in global M&A by deal count and value, according to Bloomberg and Refinitiv.
We are well-positioned to advise on strategic considerations, potential risks, investment protection, regulatory framework and other issues that arise in the context of Canadian and international transactions.
We regularly work alongside foreign law firms and other advisors on cross-border transactions that require an understanding of Canadian and other international requirements.
In addition to our Canadian M&A team, Blakes has lawyers in our New York and London offices who practise Canadian law only and lead and coordinate cross-border M&A transactions involving Canadian targets and acquirors.
