With heightened securities regulations and market fluctuations, public companies face increased scrutiny. You need a seasoned advocate who will help your business navigate these challenges – one who understands the legal and business sides of your transactions. 
We can assist you with navigating increasing regulations and complex financings and restructurings. As one of the most experienced corporate and securities law groups in the country, our team anticipates the issues you will encounter while developing plans to ensure the best possible outcomes. 

To best serve you, our team works together with BLG professionals from other areas of law to deliver optimal results.

We work with:

  • major Canadian and international corporations, public issuers, entrepreneurial and growth-oriented businesses
  • many of Canada’s best-known investment banks
  • other securities and capital markets industry participants

With varied experience, we handle domestic and cross-border corporate and securities transactions. The members of our team specialize in managing regulatory approvals, designing international tax strategies, and dealing with multi-jurisdictional legal issues in corporate finance and M&A transactions.

Additionally, we provide consistent advice on different provincial and territorial securities laws, and our group in Québec has in-depth knowledge of civil law and Québec securities laws.

Our team is at the forefront of securities policy development. We advise on securities law compliance and disclosure. As leaders within the industry, we are actively involved in the activities of the various Canadian securities commissions, consulting on new rule-making and policy initiatives, and serving on advisory committees. 

Collectively, we work with our clients to address issues regarding market policy and regulation with securities dealers and participants in the securities industry.

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG)


How a business is evaluated in the market is no longer solely based on its financial success or the products and services it sells. It is also based on reputation and whether it is seen as responsible and responding to investor demands.


Clients trust BLG to help them understand and embed ESG into their business strategies.
