The pace of global private equity and venture capital investment calls for nimble lawyers who know the industry, structure terms efficiently and keep clients informed throughout the transaction.


Clients retain Fasken because of our understanding of the private equity and venture capital industries, our proactive client service, and practical execution required to meet business demands.


Whether your goals involve fund formation, portfolio company investments, restructuring operations and/or exiting when the time is right, your team at Fasken will identify risks and issues and provide creative, effective advice. 


We advise the biggest private equity firms in Canada, including Novacap and Catalyst Capital and represent institutional investors in connection with their investments in Canadian PE and VC funds.  We work with a growing list of U.S. and foreign investors who recognize the mid-market opportunities available in Canada and we assist clients expanding their interests in Africa and Europe through our Johannesburg and London offices.


We have unrivalled experience in key Canadian industries that PE and VC firms invest in.  Our mining, life sciences, infrastructure and communications lawyers are ranked among the very best in the country. We combine this industry experience with practice expertise such as tax, intellectual property, employment, banking, finance and litigation to provide a considered, creative approach to client goals.
