Finance Practice

McMillan’s Financial Services Group is unique in that unlike most other large Canadian firms, we have a core bank lending practice that is based on lender clients rather than an add-on group materially relying upon borrower-side work generated from corporate practice. We understand the needs of lenders – from the establishment of their operations to originating a loan to selling the loan (or participating, syndicating or moving the risk off balance sheet) to working out the loan. We understand how to structure transactions to meet internal and external requirements (including credit approval, regulatory restrictions and capital requirements).  We are a financial services law firm acting for Canadian and international financial institutions and known for our work in cross-border transactions and strong working relationships with leading US and UK firms.

Mergers and Acquisitions Expertise

The Firm’s M&A Group delivers an integrated group of services to successfully assist clients in navigating the evolving legal landscape from both transactional and regulatory perspectives. Our team has extensive experience and provides trusted counsel to merging parties and related stakeholders in M&A activity across a wide range of industries. Our public and private clients range from Fortune 500 companies to fast-growing small and medium-sized enterprises. We work on M&A transactions originating in Canada, the United States and internationally.
