Commercial Agreements

BD&P's Commercial Transactions Team negotiates and structures all types of commercial agreements to serve our clients' business needs and to properly protect their interests. The agreements and arrangements that we negotiate and prepare are as varied and diverse as our client base and the industries in which our clients operate. We provide expert support and advice to our clients through all stages of corporate growth, overseeing the ongoing legal aspects of that growth and financial success. We assist our clients in understanding the ever-changing business environments in which they operate.  To ensure our clients have the utmost protection, our Team works closely with other lawyers within the firm where required, drawing on the skills and experience of lawyers in the areas of tax, competition, finance, securities, intellectual property and technology, regulatory, employment and labour, commercial real estate and litigation.
