Corporate Law


Peter Welsh Corporate LawWHAT IS CORPORATE LAW?

Corporate Law involves the legal matters arising in commerce from start up as a proprietor, partnership or corporation to and including publicly-traded national and international ventures.

Corporate Law includes issues relating to whether, when, where and how to incorporate; relations among the owners (such as agreements and, even, disagreements and disputes and their resolution); underwriting (financial services, banking and credit difficulties, restructuring, insolvency and bankruptcy); management (governance, directors’ responsibilities, employees and employment law, customers and collections and supplier contacts) and succession (estate freezes, acquisitions, divestitures, asset and share purchases and sales).

Corporate Law is diverse and involves the legal matters of small, medium and large organizations in the practice of commerce from start-up as an owner, partnership or corporation to and including publicly-traded national and international ventures.

The range of corporate law issues applies to any size of business and includes specifics as to:

  • whether, where, when and how to incorporate:

  • relations among the owners (such as agreements and, even, disagreements and disputes and their resolution);

  •  underwriting (financial services, banking and credit difficulties, restructuring, insolvency and bankruptcy);

  • management (governance, directors’ responsibilities, employees and employment law, customers and collections and supplier contacts), and

  • buying or selling businesses or divisions, succession (estate freezes, acquisitions, divestitures, asset and share purchases and sales).

Compounding the complexity of corporate law is that every government in Canada has established its own rules of corporate law none identical to the other. For your Corporate Law issues contact us.
