A corporation is a separate legal entity, with its own unique legal requirements and taxation obligations and benefits. If you are incorporating your business, drafting shareholder agreements, or undergoing a corporate restructuring, handling your corporation’s legal issues improperly can mean disaster for your business.
Corporate law encompasses a wide range of topics, such as securities, bankruptcy, contracts, and negotiations. A corporate lawyer also represents you when you have human resource problems or need to be in court for other reasons. If you own a corporation, you need the right legal representation to ensure that your legal concerns are handled correctly.
Managing a corporation is a huge undertaking. Because corporations often have many stakeholders, you are undoubtedly under a lot of pressure. A lot of people may depend on your business being successful—including shareholders, employees, and possibly a Board of Directors. You are also accountable to your customers that rely on your products and services. You want to avoid unwanted lawsuits or tax problems with Canada Revenue.
