Commercial sensitivity, efficiency, creativity and professionalism: Séguin Racine has been applying these skills with consistency for every client in every transaction for years leading to work of quality. The Firm represents both major international players for complex operations and smaller companies for which, although more modest at the monetary level, the targeted transactions involve tailor-made legal strategies and remain significant for them.

Teamwork is one of the keys to the success of Séguin Racine. The Firm’s lawyers work closely with the client and with accountants, financial intermediaries and other transaction advisers, as the case may be.

This spirit of close collaboration with the client, the knowledge of its business objectives and of the risks allow the Firm to execute any transaction, in any industry and in any financial circumstances. The client’s business objectives and Séguin Racine’s strong experience allow the Firm to offer the best counsel to decision-makers to execute their priorities and achieve their goals.

For its services to public companies, Séguin Racine has a long track record of major transactions, including a strong focus on reverse takeovers (RTO) and going-public transactions.

On many occasions, the Firm has advised its clients on critical transactions requiring multiple legal and financial processes that necessitate a perfect orchestration of several legal disciplines to ensure the clients’ business objectives are met, for instances, going-private transactions, spin-offs, joint ventures, takeovers or plans of arrangement under corporate law.

The private transaction services offer a wide range of opportunities for our Firm to provide clients with sound advice with respect to negociating and drafting documents. The extreme dedication to client services, attention to details and commercial pragmatism of our lawyers help decision makers successfully complete their transaction. The Firm’s services include cross-border transactions, asset purchases and sales, auctioning and bidding processes and restructurings.
