What we do for our Securities clients

Parlee McLaws’ Securities lawyers work to help you understand the rules that govern securities transactions and assist you in achieving your capital market goals. We work with a wide range of public companies and handle venture deals to $100M+ investments on the TSX, TSX-V and the CSE. Our group has years of experience working with oil and gas, life sciences, software, manufacturing, advanced materials, mining, agriculture, and food industry clients. We also work with various private companies including real estate clients who raise capital through exempt offerings and offering memorandums.

Our excellent relationships with the staff of the TSX, TSX-V, CSE and the Alberta Securities Commission and other securities commissions gives us a special understanding of the evolving securities rules and policies. Our work has involved listings and financings on the TSX, TSX-V, NASDAQ, and OTCBB.

We provide legal guidance on:

  • capital market offerings
  • initial public offerings
  • corporate mergers and acquisitions
  • private placements transactions
  • corporate governance matters

As part of our corporate finance work, we also regularly represent clients for brokered placements and offerings and help issuers understand regulatory compliance obligations and continuous disclosure requirements.

When regulator issues do arise, our group has the skills and expertise to assist with crucially important securities litigation. No matter what the situation, our skilled litigators will strongly advocate to protect you and your interests.

How we work with our clients

We are a regional firm that is deeply rooted in Western Canada and this means we are particularly well-versed on provincial securities rules and regulations and familiar with local issues, challenges and opportunities. It also means we have access to a broad range of in-house legal expertise, including an Intellectual Property (IP) group to help protect and advance the assets of issuers involved with innovation sectors.

Our team is always respectful of your time and resources, and use both wisely. We have excellent paralegal support and associates who can assist with all types of transactions, ensuring your costs are contained and efficiencies improved to achieve the required results. We take pride in building relationships based on respect and responsiveness and in serving as trusted advisors.
