2022 M&A Awards Gala – BCF Recognized for “Deal of the Year”

At the annual M&A Awards Gala presented on May 18th by the M&A Club, our Business Law team won top honours in the “Transaction of the Year - Law Firms” category for its transaction relating to the sale of Baylis Medical Company’s cardiology business to Boston Scientific Corporation. 

This complex cross-border transaction, in which we represented Baylis Medical Company, a leader in the development and commercialization of innovative medical devices in the fields of cardiology and spine, was completed by the sale of its cardiology products to Boston Scientific Corporation, a US-based medical device company marketing its products worldwide.

The M&A Awards are intended to celebrate excellence in the mergers and acquisitions field and to create awareness for contribution of the M&A industry to the Québec economy.

Congratulations to the entire team involved in the transaction and more specifically to Gino Martel, Annie Gauthier, Sabrina Brosseau-Malo, Olivier Moreau-Notebaert and Thomas Champagne (M&A), Marc-André Godard and Jean-François Reed (Tax), Nancy Boyle and Kevin Vincelette (Employment & Labour), Richard Epstein (Antitrust and Investment Canada Act), Eleonora Eusepi (Real Estate), Tuba Yamaç, Jean-Sébastien Brière and Jyoti Chakraborty (Intellectual Property) and Emilia Stoute (Corporate).
