We take an entrepreneurial approach to advising clients on these issues. Our goal is to structure your business to minimize liability, minimize taxation, and maximize potential growth. Equipped with our business knowledge, we concentrate on your business goals and work with you to help you achieve them.


We believe in the wholistic practise of law, which can be applied to many aspects of small business and corporate law including incorporations, shareholder agreements, contract creation, drafting, and negotiation. We strive to work with our clients to reach agreement with other parties based on a shared vision, mission, and values. To do this, we work with our clients to strategize and empower them with the tools and guidance that they need to build a framework to successfully navigate through the challenges they will face in running a business and to develop and strengthen business relationship with stakeholders.  We assist our small business and corporate clients in exploring a conscious business model where their purpose, mission, and goals are in alignment with their business model and vision. 


Our clients know that by retaining our firm as their small business and corporate lawyers, they will receive personalized attention, while benefiting from knowledge, expertise, and skill that is equal to Waterloo Region’s largest corporate-commercial law firms. We approach your concerns as if they were our own. We become familiar with your business operations in order to provide practical advice on a cost-effective basis. From small start-ups to larger corporations, all of our clients benefit from our attention to detail and personalized service.


Our lawyers are experienced business advisors who assist clients in all matters of small business and corporate law from forming a business to dissolution. We help to facilitate our clients’ business needs while ensuring that they are aware of their responsibilities under the relevant provincial and federal legislation. Our small business and corporate lawyers are also trusted advisors on more complex issues, such as shareholder disputes and corporate restructuring.
