Recent Success Stories

We take great pride in our clients. We establish long-term relationships with our clients and work closely with them as they take on new challenges with acquisitions, divestitures and new investors, and as their businesses evolve to meet market demands.

The following is a sample of our recent transactions:

We closed our third Canadian acquisition for NYSE-listed United Rentals, Inc., the world’s largest equipment rental company, in September 2015.
We closed the acquisition by plan of arrangement of Candax Energy Inc., a TSX-listed oil and gas company, for SkyLaw client Geofinance N.V. in November 2015.
We closed the spin-off of the healthcare business of TSX-listed NexJ Systems Inc. in January 2016.
We are advising the target board of directors of a TSX-V listed company on a negotiated acquisition by a larger public company.
