Get ahead of your securities compliance requirements with straightforward, practical legal and consulting services.


Practical advice. Efficient service. Fixed-fee plans. Singular focus. We help portfolio managers, dealers and fund managers know what to do and when.

Compliance with complicated Canadian securities regulation is non-negotiable. We help you make sure it’s not keeping you or your team members up at night.

With assistance from AUM Law, you can say goodbye to confusion about changes in regulatory expectations and hello to confidence in your compliance program.

Reach out to your dedicated compliance lawyer or consultant for in-the-moment regulatory support. Or let us help you take a more proactive approach by custom-building a compliance support program from our menu of more than a dozen fixed-fee regulatory compliance services.

Choose from anti-money laundering reviews, policy reviews and updates, compliance audits, NRD filings, team training for groups up to 100+ and more. Package the services you’ll use during the next one to three years on an annual fixed-fee plan for cost certainty and peace of mind.

We provide clarity on what’s required to create a strong compliance program, so you can focus on building your business.

It’s not just what you do, it’s how you do it — and when.

With AUM Law beside you, you’ll understand what you need to do to establish a culture of compliance and grow and operate your business with the certainty that comes with having a strong compliance system. You’ll be able to build a compelling case for registration of your firm and individuals, and brainstorm alternatives with the regulators if you need discretionary relief from requirements. And you’ll be prepared for a regulatory audit or sweep, so it goes as smoothly as possible.

It all comes down to prevention, preparation and prioritization — three things that may be a challenge for securities registrants to accomplish on their own. We’ll help you minimize your regulatory risks and manage your compliance tasks with skill, precision, speed and practical advice.
