Corporate and Commercial Companies, Shareholders, Leases

Setting up a corporation, purchasing a business, reorganizing an existing corporation, discussing the advantages of a sole proprietorship, or a partnership, creating the documentation for a partners’ or shareholders’ agreement: these are handled by our Corporate Department. We will help you choose the right structure for your business, as it starts, and as it grows. Reflecting it accurately on paper through leases and agreements, where appropriate, keeps it manageable for you over the years. We also handle matters such as restructuring a business, amalgamating or merging it with another and structuring its service and supplier contracts.

Corporate and Commercial Matters

We offer services in all areas of Corporate & Commercial Law including establishing corporations (share capital, non-profit & charitable), partnerships, and sole proprietorship business registrations.

If you are an existing business owner, we handle all types of corporate reorganizations, amalgamations, business contracts, franchising, and updating and maintaining corporate records.

If you are considering buying or selling a business, whether by asset or share sale/purchase, we can assist in this area regardless of what stage your negotiations are at.
Our office also handles all areas of commercial leasing as well as residential landlord and tenant matters.

Our lawyers and staff have many years experience in the area of Corporate & Commercial Law and would be pleased to discuss with you your business concerns and offer advice on the best solution for you based on your specific needs.

Business Purchases and Sales

Sarah Jacob and our staff will work with you throughout the process from the negotiation of the agreement to the final after-closing details. Though we focus on the details, we never lose sight of the big picture – completing the transaction to your satisfaction.

Trademarks

Without trademark registration, your business name and logo have little protection and you may not be able to stop others from using them. All that hard work can then go down the drain. Bruce Margles is a registered trademark agent who can assist you in the preparation of your applications for a Canadian trademark or design mark registration.
