Mergers and Acquisitions

Goodmans' M&A group is known by industry players as a formidable, "top tier" practice, with more leading M&A lawyers than any other Canadian law firm.  We're known by our clients as first-rate dealmakers, with the responsiveness, energy and passion to close the deal. 

If it's reported in the business pages, chances are, we played a role.  Our group has represented clients involved in every aspect of a deal: acquirors, targets, borrowers and issuers, underwriters, investors, and has developed a number of niche markets, including targets of hostile takeover bids and private equity clients.  A results-oriented team, we pride ourselves on providing practical advice, innovative solutions and a solid level of commitment that ensures transactions are completed on the clients' terms and schedules.

By maintaining both a keen understanding of the business and legal environment and a sharp focus on the issues particular to each deal, we respond quickly and creatively to the nuances and challenges of sophisticated transactions, both large and small.
