We put our group’s talents to work for other lawyers while fully respecting their relationship with their client. For example, we can provide you with our expertise on private international law matters, whether it is a question of determining how and where to best enforce a judgment or arbitral award or of which set of laws (including trans-national instruments) and forum to select. We also support foreign counsel on issues of Canadian law such as effecting contract reviews to ensure compliance with Canadian law, providing transactional opinions for Canadian parties, proffering advice on Canadian regulatory matters and carrying out local due diligence. Our paralegals assist colleagues from around the world by obtaining official copies of personal certificates for probate or other purposes. Whatever the mandate, our familiarity with many legal systems enables us to translate Canadian legal concepts into analogous concepts of foreign law, and vice versa, thereby allowing foreign counsel to make better informed decisions.
