Asia Pacific

We help companies do business with and in Canada.

We have long-standing relationships with clients throughout the Asia Pacific region, leading many of Canada’s most notable cross-border transactions with the region in recent years. We work with, among others, some of the most prominent companies in Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand and significant companies and state-owned entities in China, South Korea, Japan, India, Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia. Our strong relationships with local law firms and regulatory bodies, combined with our understanding of the commercial and cultural expectations in the region, allow us to provide seamless transaction support for Canadian ventures.

Our lawyers provide a full spectrum of legal advice on everything from mergers and acquisitions to litigation, and advice on the nuances of Canadian laws relating to co-ventures, foreign investment, competition, employment, tax, and other areas that are important to entities with an interest in Canada.
