Save the Date!


We are pleased to announce our first National Business Law Conference. With client demands to reduce costs and increased competition from both legal and non-legal competitors, business lawyers need to be more knowledgeable, practical and efficient than ever. 

Join leading experts and your peers from across Canada to explore current and emerging trends in mergers and acquisitions and how those trends will impact your practice in the future, whether as a sole practitioner or in a leading multi-national firm. 

Among the topics planned for our inaugural Business Law Conference are:

  • Trends and Developments in Canadian Private Company M&A
  • The Future of Automation in M&A Transactions (Ethical and Practice Management Issues)
  • Tax Developments designed for Business Lawyers
  • Earn Outs: a Tool to Bridge the Valuation Gap or a Trap for the Unwary
  • Protecting and Leveraging Intellectual Property for an M&A Transaction
  • Recent Key Court Decisions Arising From Disputes Involving M&A Transactions



Registration will open in the summer.
