Mergers & Acquisitions

Business leaders running transformational deals – or smaller strategic ones – want a winning path to the finish line. When faced with hostile situations, they expect no less. Our focus is always on getting the deal done as we tackle issues and create strategies that simply work.

Public or private, buy or sell, we excel at the most business-critical transactions with a precise combination of creativity and practicality – meaning that our clients get the best possible business terms on the tightest closing schedules. Whether large, small or multijurisdictional, complex transactions require a firm grasp of a wide range of sophisticated issues. All demand the same level of rigour and depth of experience. Which is why we take a lean, cross-practice team approach, helping you achieve the best results, whether you’re a publicly traded company, a private equity firm or an ambitious entrepreneur.

We use our deal fluency and track record for trailblazing to get the deal done. Clients such as Burger King, in its groundbreaking US$12.5-billion acquisition of Tim Hortons, Fortis, in its US$11.3-billion transformative acquisition of ITC, and Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc., in its US$4.4-billion acquisition of CST Brands Inc., rely on us to achieve their strategic goals.
