Members of the group provide advice with respect to the raising of capital within the regulatory structure of applicable securities laws, regulations and policies. Our firm acts for issuers and underwriters on significant offerings of equity and debt securities, and we also assist investors and issuers in connection with venture capital and seed capital offerings and private placements. In addition, we assist our publicly traded clients in meeting applicable continuous disclosure and annual meeting requirements.

Another focus is our agency practice, acting for law firms across the country as local counsel in connection with cross-jurisdictional transactions. This often entails analyzing a transaction from the perspective of regulatory compliance, making any necessary applications to The Manitoba Securities Commission, and liaising with staff at the Commission.

Our securities clients include local and national publicly traded issuers, independent corporate finance firms, venture capital funds, the securities divisions of chartered banks, law firms, investment counsel and portfolio managers, and mutual funds.
