Business law is one of our longest-running practice areas, with its inception at Siskinds starting many decades ago. Our team works with clients at all points in evolution and within any sector. We build relationships with clients who own or work at startups, managed businesses, family-based businesses and professional corporations as well as regional, national and multi-national corporations.

Having one of the largest business law groups in Southwestern Ontario enables us to assemble customized teams to meet specific client needs in a timely and cost-effective manner.

Our clients count on us to provide a breadth of expertise that ranges from the complexities of mergers and acquisitions, corporate reorganizations, financing, high-profile transactions and litigation to serving the equally important needs that relate to the day-to-day operation of a business.
