Who’s Who Legal - Capital Markets has cited the comment: “It’s difficult to think of anyone better than him for IPOs in Canada.”

M&A:  Stephen has led the legal team on many significant public and private M&A transactions - examples include Milestone’s buyout by Starwood, Kew Media’s global roll-up of eleven media companies, Welltower & Revera’s buyout of Regal, Milestone’s acquisition from Landmark, Northwest Healthcare’s merger with Northwest International, Canadian Pacific’s JV with Dream Unlimited, HealthLease’s buyout by HCN, Revera’s JV with HCN, Canaccord’s acquisition of Collins Stewart Hawkpoint, Revera’s acquisition of Sunrise, Canaccord’s merger with Genuity, Versa Capital’s buyout of Allen-Vanguard, Scanfield & Fairfax’s taking private of Arbor, Futuremed’s buyout by Cardinal, Senior Care’s sale to Ventas, CI Financial’s acquisition of Rockwater, Revera’s buyout by PSP, and CPL’s merger with RRR.

Cross-border: Stephen has led many Canadian “firsts,” including its first cross-border income fund, first cross-border REIT, first offering of income participating securities, first cross-border high dividend common share IPO, first non-US IPO in the world of a US REIT, and first cross-border SPAC.

REITs: According to Lexpert, Bay Street dubs Stephen “Canada’s King of REITs.”

SPACs: A pioneer of several highly innovative SPAC structures, Stephen has been lead counsel on the majority of Canada’s SPAC transactions to date.
