Legal Solutions for the Builders of Tomorrow

We provide practical legal guidance to help you build, grow or sell your business, fund, project, or dream at every stage of the journey.

Startups

We’ve been there – in fact, most of our team runs their own businesses. So we know how tough the entrepreneurial journey is.

That’s part of what makes us unique – we’re not just legal advisors. We’re also startup advisors who have been there in the trenches.

On the legal side, we’ve seen all the mistakes you can imagine. Ask us how much time we’ve spent cleaning up messes that entrepreneurs could have avoided if they had done things right in the first place.

There are so many things that you have to do for the first time as an entrepreneur: incorporate a company, hire an employee, issue stock options, enter into contracts with service providers, raise money, etc.

While it may be your first time, it’s nor our first time. We’ve worked with hundreds of startup clients – from some of the smallest in Canada to a number of unicorns.

We’re a team of young, entrepreneurial lawyers whose bread and butter is working with startup clients.

As a result, when you work with us, you’ll be working with lawyers who actually understand your business and can provide practical, cost-effective legal advice.

You have a big idea and you’re looking to become the next unicorn.

Growth

Getting a business off the ground isn’t easy. Trust us, we know.

That’s not just because we’ve worked with hundreds of entrepreneurs. It’s because most of our lawyers are entrepreneurs who have started and currently run their own businesses.

You’re trying to raise money from investors, but you need someone who can help protect you manage the process with more sophisticated investors. You’ve heard horror stories of lawyers who kill deals by overlawyering. Maybe you’ve even had a bad legal experience in the past, when you raised your last round.

That’s where we come in – we’ve worked on tiny financings for our early-stage clients. And we’ve also worked on huge ones (including the biggest one in Canadian history).

When you work with us, you get practical competent counsel who understand your goals and get things done.

It’s why over and over again, we hear clients tell us that we were the first lawyers that they’ve ever enjoyed working with.

M&A

Buying or selling a business for the first time is stressful. The process feels overwhelming and full of potential roadblocks.

Traditionally, there have been 2 options – neither of which were good for clients.

You could use a big law firm. They definitely know what they’re doing, but you’re going to pay an arm and a leg (and probably another leg when you get the surprise bill at the end).

Or you could use the lawyer who dabbles in this work. Trust us when we say this is a terrible idea. They’ll miss key things that will end up costing you dearly.

Your goal is to close the deal and protect yourself from some risk. Our job is to let you sleep peacefully at night and get the deal done on time and on budget.

Most of our lawyers are entrepreneurs themselves, so they know what it’s like to be in your shoes. It’s why we’re known for providing practical, cost-effective advice.

Some of our lawyers literally teach lawyers at the biggest firms in Canada how to run M&A deals.

When you work with us, you get the best of both worlds.

You get lawyers who have worked at big firms and know what they’re doing; but without having to pay big firm prices and getting stuck dealing with lawyers who just want to argue the smallest, most irrelevant legal points.

Regulatory Compliance

As you grow, you will need the right licenses to operate in certain ways (e.g. when you’re building financial products and services). You will also need on-going support to remain compliant, pass any audits, and solve tricky situations with the ever-changing regulations.

Our regulatory compliance solutions will offer you practical solutions from professionals who have been in the trenches at some of the largest FinTech companies in the country.

General Counsel as a Service

You’re past the seed or even Series A phase of your business, and you need on-going legal help. However, bringing in a General Counsel seems too much. Instead, get multi-disciplinary help for a fixed monthly fee to support your regular legal needs.
