Private M&A



Fasken’s Private M&A team is among the most active and diversified in Canada.  We work closely with you to assess and manage risks, and complete transactions in a manner that will help you achieve your goals. We pride ourselves on providing a practical, innovative and cost-effective approach, no matter the size of the client or complexity of the deal.


We act for buyers, sellers, targets, investors and shareholder groups ranging from multinational corporations to professional service firms to family businesses and their shareholders. In addition, financial institutions, private equity and venture capital firms are among our long-standing clients.


Apart from mergers, acquisitions and divestitures, our team assists with spin-outs, management buy-outs and investments, private equity or venture capital.


When clients embark on joint ventures or strategic alliances, we clarify mutual goals, structure agreements and negotiate to meet objectives.


Over the years, we have been involved in complex transactions taking place in highly regulated environments.  We benefit from positive long-standing relationships with regulators.


Whether your transaction is local, national or international in scope, lawyers across the firm can help.  One of the hallmarks of our practice is our ability to assemble multidisciplinary teams, including experts in tax, competition (antitrust), intellectual property, regulatory, labour & employment, governance, securities, environment or real estate. Our approach is fully integrated and we provide strategic advice to ensure that risks are identified and managed, and that ultimately, the value of your transaction is preserved following closing.
