Freshfields in Canada
Our dedicated Canada group regularly advises Canadian companies, banks and financial investors on their investments and activities around the globe, and supports our international clients on their activities in Canada.
We have a detailed understanding of the Canadian legal, business and cultural environment and have both Canadian-qualified lawyers and internationally qualified Canadians across the firm.
For international clients seeking to do business in Canada, our relationships with leading Canadian law firms mean we can help across all practice areas and sectors. We’re not affiliated with one particular firm or group, so we can always work with the most suitable Canadian firm for each individual mandate.
