BUSINESS & CORPORATE

LAW FIRM IN TORONTO FOR BUSINESS & COMMERCIAL TRANSACTIONS

STRATEGIES

Your business/corporate lawyer should be an integral member of your team. To effectively serve you, your lawyer:

  • requires an understanding and a feel for your business goals;
  • must be able to effectively communicate with you;
  • must be able to effectively assist you to consider the implications of your intentions;
  • must steer you towards cost effective legal strategies;
  • must provide you with the appropriate documentation in a timely manner at a reasonable cost.


Bryon C. Cohen implements these strategies by incorporating the most fundamental lesson he learned from his first employer. He was taught to conceptualize everything that may be negative or wrong with a client’s proposed action plan and/or agreement and then to either recommend improvements or explain why the proposed action plan and/or agreement is not practical.


You as a business person and executive must collect information from your professional advisors and your business associates in addition to your research. You then need to assess all this information recognizing the approaches and viewpoints of the persons providing the information. A reasoned decision is then made by assessing the risks of one or more courses of action available to you.


If you are not satisfied with the legal advice and / or services you have been receiving or if you are starting a new business, you are invited to meet with Mr. Cohen on a complimentary basis to determine our ability to fulfill your requirements.
