Securities Law

securities_1As sophisticated securities law expertise is found almost exclusively in the largest of Canada’s law firms, Acuity provides a unique alternative.  Acuity was founded by lawyers who came from Bay Street firms to establish a boutique securities law firm specifically catered to providing comprehensive, practical and personalized securities law advice to the junior and mid-market.  More and more we hear from clients after migrating to us from large law firms that the culture and billing philosophy of their old law firm was simply not the right fit. Our clients find it refreshing that our approach is to sweep away the formality, roll up our sleeves and just get involved by providing practical, efficient and cost-effective service individually tailored to each client’s specific needs and the industry in which they operate.

Acuity lawyers are regularly engaged to assist clients with the following matters:

• Corporate finance (including private placements and prospectus offerings)
• Mergers & acquisitions (including reverse takeovers and CPC qualifying transactions)
• Strategic investments, options and joint ventures and commercial arrangements
• Stock exchange listings
• Investment and private equity funds
• Dealer and advisor registration and compliance
• Public board and special committee representation
