Capital Markets & Securities

Capital is the lifeblood of any business. Accessing public and private markets with agility and creativity – in Canada and the U.S. – is essential. Plugged into the industry, our team constructs innovative solutions that help unlock capital and protect you for the future.

Complex financings demand sophisticated solutions. From IPOs and secondary offerings to high-yield and investment-grade debt, we create tailored structures that work.

Our reach is multijurisdictional. Canadian and U.S. issuers turn to us for their cross-border financings because we understand the way markets work throughout North America. From advising a major U.S. bank on the first southbound-only equity offering under MJDS to establishing a rare cross-border two-shelf debt platform for Canada’s largest communications company, our creativity gets the job done.

Using our extensive experience and connections, we settle issues quickly to satisfy regulatory requirements. Canadian securities regulators and stock exchanges seek our perspectives to shape policy and legislation. We share our insights, keeping our clients’ interests first.
