Private Financing and Internal Financing

When institutional financing is not available or desired, we can help.  Our extensive client base, who operate in diverse sectors, can often be of assistance in providing secured wealth when needed.  Or perhaps you are looking at internal financing via shareholder or partner advance. Either way, Mann Lawyers has extensive experience in external and internal financing and can assist with negotiating, structuring, and papering these loans.

The Mann Lawyers Business Law team routinely prepares:

  • Letters of Intent
  • Loan agreements
  • General Security Agreements
  • Promissory Notes
  • Factoring agreements
  • PPSA registrations

Private Company Securities

Issuing shares through private placements can be a great avenue to raise money for a privately held company. We assist such privately held businesses with their equity financing and exempt distributions.

In addition to providing advice on the available capital raising prospectus exemptions, the exempt market, and securities legislation, we also prepare and negotiate:

  • Subscription Agreements
  • Voting Trusts
  • Share Deposit Agreements
  • Stock Option Plans
  • Stock Option Agreements
  • Convertible debentures

Our structure as a full-service firm means that the Mann Lawyers Business Law team can collaborate and connect with experts in various areas of law to ensure your interests are protected. We have access to environmental, employment and labour, and construction law experts, among others, that will help with issues or matters that may arise throughout the process.

We work with you every step of the way, from the initial assessment until the deal is closed. At Mann Lawyers LLP, we provide our clients with well round legal services that seek to maximize our client’s interests. No matter the service, we work directly with you to ensure you are fully informed and involved.
