Mergers & Acquisitions

Subscribe Fasken

Successful deals require the right mix of vision, strategic planning and experience.


Because no two M&A deals are alike, we structure transactions to meet clients’ unique objectives.  Identifying potential issues and regulatory requirements at an early stage allows us to propose solutions to meet these objectives.  This - along with the collective insight from hundreds of deals across our firm – is what creates value for our clients.


Our clients range from start-ups to industry leaders and include private equity funds, strategic buyers, boards of directors and independent committees, professional service firms, family businesses and their shareholders, as well as public companies listed on stock exchanges throughout the world.


Our expertise includes advising shareholders, boards, special committees and management in public and private financings, acquisitions and divestitures, proxy contests, take-over defence planning, capital reorganizations and management buy-outs.


We have expertise in a variety of industries, including mining, energy, transportation, agribusiness, financial institutions, investment funds, telecommunications and technology.


More than 100 Fasken lawyers focus on advancing M&A strategies for clients every day. Another 600 are available to step in with specific advice on tax strategies, competition and foreign investment laws, acquisition financing, labour and employment, corporate finance, intellectual property, foreign corrupt practices and government relations. This makes our M&A team one of the largest and most integrated in Canada and elsewhere.
