The breadth of the firm's services allows lawyers to work effectively with a wide range of companies - from entrepreneurial start-ups to mid-market enterprises to global corporations.

The firm has acted on deals honoured at the Canadian Dealmakers' Gala every year since its inception, and has represented winners at the Canadian General Counsel Awards annually since 2008.

Many of the firm's lawyers have worked as executives at some of Canada's largest companies, as top-level elected officials and civil servants, and have served as board members for many private and public organisations. Their real world experience can often make all the difference between a good result and a great result.
