Advisory Service: Securities Law and Public Company Transactions

At Ormston List Frawley LLP, we are one of the few smaller firms in Toronto that maintains a very active practice in securities law compliance and public company transactions. Our lawyers bring a wealth of knowledge and experience from their past work at prominent international law firms. By venturing out of the large-firm environment, we now make this sophisticated level of advice available to clients in a more flexible, personalized setting.

Comprehensive Guidance For Pubic Companies

Every exchange has its own specific regulations regarding reporting obligations and raising capital. We provide advice on everything that small and mid-sized businesses need to be aware of as current or aspiring public companies.

Whether your company is listed on the TSX, TSX Venture Exchange or CSE, we know which rules and limitations apply, how to interpret securities regulations and what you should and should not say in your disclosures.

Our advice is aimed at keeping you compliant while balancing the challenges and financial constraints you face as a smaller public company. We provide securities advice under both Canadian and U.S. law and can assist you in such areas as:

  • Business structures
  • Corporate governance
  • Initial listings
  • Moving from one exchange to another
  • Quarterly reporting of financial results
  • Annual auditing
  • Continuous disclosure obligations
  • Organizing shareholder meetings
  • Drafting of circulars
  • Drafting of subscription agreements
  • Private placements
  • Equity and debt financing, including flow-through financing
