Corporate/Commercial | Practices | Fasken

We tailor expertise to suit your business needs, whether it involves completing a major transaction, starting a new venture, negotiating an important contract or expanding operations in a new region.

Fasken advises clients on the wide array of legal issues arising from their pursuit of strategic and commercial success, from day-to-day operations through to strategic initiatives and complex transactions that transform the business.


Having a legal team with the right expertise and experience on your side is essential for your business. Our corporate/commercial lawyers bring legal excellence, applied in a practical and business-oriented way, to the needs of our clients.


We advise on all aspects of a business’s operations and strategy, including starting new ventures, ensuring corporate governance compliance, conducting strategic planning, raising debt or equity financing, buying or selling all or part of a business or carrying out corporate reorganizations.


The clients we work with range from entrepreneurs to multinational corporations in a wide range of industries. Fasken has long advised family businesses, private and public corporations and partnerships, professional service firms, governments and non-profit organizations of all sizes. Many clients view their Fasken lawyers as general counsel who work with the leaders and owners of their businesses on an ongoing basis, and who understand their concerns. For clients with in-house general or corporate counsel, we work closely with in-house legal teams to provide additional expertise or functional resources, whatever their requirements may be.


We also work with foreign clients who need local counsel in Canada, the United Kingdom or South Africa. We have a wide-ranging network of contacts who help wherever you do business and we often work with teams of lawyers around the world to meet client objectives on international matters. We have lawyers who practice common law and civil law; many of us are bilingual and some are trilingual.


Our corporate/commercial lawyers are also members of other industry and practice area subgroups, lending the team an array of deep legal expertise in a wide variety of industries and practice areas.
