Canadian Business and Corporate Lawyers

Our Business and Corporate Law Services

We advise on, establish and maintain appropriate Business and Corporate Structures for your Entertainment Industry business.

Entertainment is a creative business. An appropriate and well-maintained business structure is critical – to facilitate collaboration, allocate benefits as well as responsibilities, protect against business risks and ensure tax efficiency.

Our lawyers are experienced in advising our clients on an appropriate business structure for their circumstances – from sole proprietors to corporations, from partnerships to joint-ventures. We’ll discuss the pros and cons of each, then establish, register, and maintain your choice of business structure – clearing and registering your business name, partnership and joint venture agreements, incorporation, corporate changes, purchase or sale transactions, reorganizations, and annual corporate maintenance.

We advise and assist in every aspect of establishing and maintaining your business and corporate structure. Some of the most common services we provide are described below.

We advise on the pros and cons of incorporation, share structure, officers and directors. We incorporate, prepare opening resolutions, issue shares and complete the required government filings.

Shareholders’ Agreement

An agreement between shareholders to govern their relationships with each other, management of the corporation and dealings with third parties.

Corporate Maintenance

A corporation comes with regular maintenance obligations, particularly to shareholders and government bodies. We help clients meet these requirements.

Corporate Reorganization

As our clients’ businesses grow, their corporate structures may need to adapt – to be restructured or reorganized, or to add or remove shareholders, directors or officers.

Investment, Purchase or Sale

Agreements to invest in, purchase or sell a business.

Amalgamation / Dissolution

Single-Purpose Production Companies, for use on specific projects, are typically wound down at the end of the project by amalgamation or dissolution of the SPPC.

“Rollovers” (Sections 85, 86, 51)

Transferring assets to or between corporations may create tax consequences – good or bad. We prepare the transfer agreement and corporate structure based on your circumstances and the advice of your tax advisor.

Partnership and Joint Ventures

Collaboration can take many forms, other than corporate. We advise on and create partnership, joint venture, co-production and similar agreements.
