Cooley's Canada practice reflects the growing trend in cross-border business transactions between the U.S. and Canada. We have represented numerous Canadian and U.S. public and private companies, venture capitalists and entrepreneurs in issues dealing with public and private financings, acquisitions, joint ventures, securities, licensing, labor, litigation, intellectual property and bankruptcy matters.
Our attorneys provide counsel to Canadian companies across a wide range of industries, including semiconductors, software, technology, medical devices, telecommunications, e-business, energy, consumer goods and pharmaceuticals/biotechnology.
We also assist U.S. businesses expanding into Canada, whether through technology licensing, sales and distribution channels or establishing their own operations and subsidiaries. We provide assistance with international tax planning, corporate structuring, employment and stock option issues and counsel U.S. companies on protecting their intellectual property (patents/ trademarks/copyrights) as they expand overseas.
Cooley understands the Canadian legal system, business landscape and culture, and we work with our Canadian and U.S. clients to help them navigate cross-border legal and business issues.
