Corporate Law is a broad and often over-used term. However in general, corporate law would include any transaction that involves a company. More specifically, this includes: incorporations, amalgamations, extra-provincial registrations, continuations, dissolutions and wind-ups, dividend declarations, shareholder's agreements, share alterations, and simple to highly complex tax-planned reorganizations.
At Baker Newby LLP, corporate law is therefore an integral part of our business law practice. From the initial step of incorporating a company to the dissolution of a company, and everything in between, our lawyers practicing in this area have in-depth knowledge of companies, their uses, and the laws that govern them.
