Corporate Finance and Securities

Goodmans' corporate finance and securities group is a hands-on team of business and legal advisors with a focus on strategy, creativity and results.  Our lawyers are known for their flexibility in structuring deals of all sizes, and their professionalism when working with clients’ teams, other advisors, regulators and competitors alike. 

Our lawyers are passionate about their work, whether serving corporate or entrepreneurial clients, and are equally at home with public and private, debt and equity transactions. 

The corporate finance and securities group routinely handles initial and secondary public offerings of all sizes and complexity, private placements, rights offerings, derivative and structured financings, spin-offs, asset securitizations, takeovers, mutual funds, cross-border LYONS and similar hybrid offerings and specialized tax-efficient instruments.  We also represent registrants in application and compliance matters and act for market participants in disciplinary and other regulatory proceedings. Clients include issuers, investment dealers, merchant banks, investors and regulators. 

Our group’s advantage lies in its ability to create elegant financing structures with regulatory confidence. Several of our lawyers have held senior positions with principal regulatory agencies across Canada, including the OSC and the TSX. Our clients benefit from the sound regulatory perspective that comes from having former regulators on the team.

Our lawyers and staff pride themselves in their exceptional ability to communicate – with team members; with other practice groups; with clients and their stakeholders; with other advisors.  It’s one of the reasons we develop such stong and longstanding relationships with our clients.  When clients want to do something strategic or innovative – and need a good communicator on the team – we get the call.
