The technology sector continues to have an ever-increasing importance to the Canadian and global economies. Our lawyers have extensive experience in this sector and use this expertise to craft creative, customized and practical solutions for our clients. We are able to provide a wide range of services to all participants in the sector, whether they be entrepreneurs who want to set-up, scale-up or sell their businesses, institutional investors, companies that want to enter into outsourcing and other complex services agreements with technology service providers or large multinationals looking to acquire technology companies. Where necessary, we will consult highly-qualified practitioners in specialized practice areas, such as tax and patent law, or in other jurisdictions to provide seamless service to our clients.

Our lawyers have significant experience advising technology companies on a broad range of business law matters. In fact, we have been working in this sector since before the dotcom crash. We are able to assist technology companies with respect to all lifecycle events, including formation, debt financing, capital raising and exit.

Our lawyers have represented both investors and technology companies with respect to investments in technology companies, including structuring, drafting and negotiating share subscription agreements, convertible debentures, debt financings and shareholder agreements.

We also have experience counselling companies with respect to launching new apps, including with respect to End User License Agreements and Terms of Service, privacy policies and compliance with Canada’s Anti-Spam Law.
