Canada has long been an attractive market for private equity and venture capital investors. Indeed, in some industries such as mining, it is the leading venture capital market in the world. A relatively stable economy, low risk and an abundance of capital have attracted companies and financiers from all over the world to explore investment opportunities and launch businesses in the Canadian market. Whichever side of the financing equation they are on, they know that a knowledgeable law firm with deep experience can help them maximize their opportunities and mitigate their risks.
McMillan's Private Equity and Venture Capital Industry Group has been an active participant in the Canadian markets for many years. We bring an unmatched commitment to helping clients execute transactions efficiently, using lean teams of corporate and tax lawyers, complemented, where appropriate, by relevant specialists.
Our private equity group has extensive experience working with private equity funds and financial institutions in acquisitions and dispositions, and related finance transactions. We regularly act for fund sponsors in fund formation and have worked closely with US and international law firms in cross-border private equity transactions, providing legal advice and support on the Canadian components of the transaction.
