Business Transaction Lawyers Serving Toronto and the surrounding area

At Mills & Mills LLP, our business group has extensive experience facilitating transactions between commercial entities. The purchase or sale of an existing business can be a complex process with multiple considerations at stake. Our lawyers have the skill and expertise to ensure that these transactions are carried out correctly and efficiently, while protecting our clients’ interests throughout.

In addition to the primary transaction of buying or selling a business, there are often related issues regarding employees, real estate and contracts that require skilled attention to detail. Our business lawyers will ensure that all peripheral matters are taken care of, drawing on the skill and experience of other lawyers in the firm when necessary.

Mergers and Acquisitions

We assist clients in various transactions, advising them with respect to matters such as assets and liabilities, leases, licenses, security documents, and bylaws. When executing a major commercial transaction, it is also important for our clients to understand their legal responsibilities to shareholders, employees and other interested parties, and our lawyers will ensure that they are properly informed.

Our Toronto business lawyers have decades of experience helping clients negotiate and complete:

  • Amalgamations
  • Sales
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Corporate reorganizations
  • Financing transactions

Our clients appreciate the personal level of service they receive at our firm, and that they can always reach us when they have questions. They can trust in the fact that our lawyers will provide them with sound and practical advice, work to limit their liability, and ensure that their business transactions are completed properly.
