Raising money in either the public or private markets is a demanding and necessary affair for growing businesses. Fasken Martineau's Capital Markets group provides critical and timely advice on corporate finance matters, including public offerings and private placements of equity and debt securities, dual listings, capital reorganizations, corporate governance and ongoing compliance, and registration of dealers and advisors.

Our international team — including both English and French-speaking lawyers — can help you navigate the regulatory landscape in multiple jurisdictions. We offer a seamless service between our offices in Canada, the UK and South Africa.

Our capital markets experience spans a wide range of industries, although we are most well known for our expertise in mining, energy (conventional and renewable), financial services, life sciences, communications, and real estate.
