Initial public offerings, mergers and acquisitions of public companies, privatisations of public companies, reverse takeovers–all must comply with a complex web of regulations while avoiding a multitude of pitfalls.
The same is true of corporate governance structures and practices. Whether dealing with day-to-day compliance or a large-scale transaction, BCF’s securities team helps clients navigate these difficult waters so that they can achieve their business goals. Our team represents public companies, portfolio managers, investment fund managers, brokers, and Canadian collective investment organisations. We advise on regulations established by the Canadian securities regulatory authorities, the Toronto Stock Exchange, the TSX Venture Exchange, and the CSE Canadian Stock Exchange.
Our professionals’ personalised and collaborative approach to managing the complexity of securities files provides our clients with customised solutions. We also offer translation and legal review of prospectuses, annual information forms, tender offers, and circulars and other specialised and technical documents.
