Securities

The lawyers in the Langlois lawyers Securities group act as legal and strategic advisors to corporations for the purposes of their securities transactions on the capital market, and to institutional and private investors.

Rules laid down by law and in articles of incorporation, bylaws, and shareholder agreements must be followed in the event of the departure or arrival of a shareholder, transfers during a reorganization or merger, or in any other event.

Share transfers involve negotiations that include aspects of business, corporate law, tax law, and accounting.
