Acquisitions and Dispositions
Many people state that the whole purpose of starting a business is to ultimately sell it. Whether you just love running your business, are buying anew one, selling an existing one or passing your business on to the next generation, we can help. From a corporate law perspective (and tax law as well) properly structuring your acquisition or disposition of a corporation is important to complete right from the start.
- Buying a business (Share or Asset)
- Selling a business (Share or Asset)
- Starting Up A New Business
Properly structuring and maintaining your corporation is as important as setting one up in the first place. The right vehicle, structure and documentation all protect you and your business. Once set up, annual and situational procedures continue that protection. Above all, failing to comply with these rules may result in the loss of corporate structure and protection. We explain your
options, the pros and cons of each and then help you implement your decision. We offer a full range of these business services. For example, we offer the following:
- Restructuring existing businesses;
- Share Transfers;
- Sole proprietorships;
- Section 85 Rollovers;
- Incorporating a business (Learn the Benefits of Incorporation here);
- Calgary Professional Corporations;
- Edmonton Professional Corporations;
- Corporate Securities;
- Trade Names;
- Corporate Name Changes;
- Maintaining Corporate Minute Books;
- Act as Registered Office for corporations;
- Annual returns (as required by legislation); and lastly
- Dissolving Alberta Companies
Ensuring the correct contractual agreements is a key part of any business structure. Properly drafted corporate agreements make the running of a business much easier. They set the rules, avoid disputes and provide a navigation tool for the owners, employees and affiliated companies. Generally, the cost of properly setting up your agreement us much lower than people expect. It is also much lower and less stressful than when clients discover, too late, that they do not have a properly drafted agreement in place. Some clients operate with none at all. For example, we assist our corporate clients with the following corporate agreements:
- Unanimous shareholder agreements;
- Partnership agreements;
- Joint venture agreements;
- Service Agreements;
- Corporate Financing; and lastly
- Reviewing and/or drafting agreements (including asset purchase and sale agreements, shareholder agreements, or service agreements)
Corporate Policies and Procedures
Much like the above agreements, policies and procedures set the rules for employees internally. There are many corporate policies that businesses need to protect themselves.

Corporate Law Legal Fee Rates
We believe in transparency and ensuring that clients know where their money is being spent. Many of our corporate law and commercial law services are based on flat rate fees, allowing you to know exactly what you pay, with no surprises or hidden costs. For legal services that we do not offer flat rate fees for, we often give you a fee range and explain why a fee would be on the higher end or the lower end. For instance, if you asked us to do additional work in the course of a retainer, we explain the additional costs. Learn more about our flat rate commercial law and corporate law services here.
