Business and Financial Services Law Group

The lawyers of the HARRISON PENSA™ Business and Financial Services Group share one characteristic that few other lawyers can claim: we think like business owners. Our clients turn to us knowing they will receive practical advice based on industry knowledge, market opportunities, managed risk, and a comprehensive command of the wide-ranging law of business.

Our clients include businesses both large and small, local and international, in a wide range of industries. We represent clients across the Canadian economy, from oil & gas and agriculture to manufacturing, retail services and computer technology. We also act for major Canadian and international financial institutions and borrowers in all types of financing transactions.

Businesses of all types seek our counsel on appropriate legal structures, our advice on third-party agreements with franchisors, suppliers and customers, and our representation of their interests in front of lenders and shareholders. We help structure and negotiate the sale, purchase and financing of businesses and the protection of assets.
