Corporate and Commercial Law – Our Corporate team is well versed in the needs of start-up businesses and works closely with clients to make sure they understand the incorporation process, and how to set up their company so that it has the flexibility to achieve their long-term business goals. This attention to detail is also critically important as clients manage and expand their business, allowing them to explore new opportunities and navigate challenges. 

Employment and Labour Law – Understanding your rights, responsibilities and options provides you with the tools to ensure your business operates efficiently and in accordance with applicable employment and labour legislation and the ever-evolving common law. We work with clients to develop employment and contracting agreements that are industry appropriate and will continue to be effective as your business grows and changes.

Intellectual Property and Innovation – With one of the largest intellectual property (“IP”) and innovation groups in Western Canada, our skilled lawyers and patent and trademark agents can help you identify and protect your valuable IP to provide you with an edge over competitors. When it comes time to commercialize your IP, we can help you draft IP transfer and licensing agreements to ensure you are protected.
