Financing and sale of your business


In recent years, the Lavery Capital team has advised over one hundred businesses and participated in numerous corporate financing transactions, exit transactions and other mergers and acquisitions transactions.

Corporate financing

We help entrepreneurs finance their businesses at all stages of the corporate life cycle: start-ups and early-stage companies with seed, pre-seed and Series A financing; later-stage companies with Series B financing, Series C financing and growth capital; and established companies with project financing.

If your business is in need of financing, whether to build its product or its team, to accelerate growth or to finance a specific project, our team can help you structure and close your financing, including the negotiation of transaction documents.

We can assist you with equity financing, convertible debt financing or other convertible instruments (KISS, SAFE). If you are considering bank financing through a traditional loan, line of credit or letter of credit, 

Our bank financing team can help you.

Sale of a business

If you are looking to sell your business, the Lavery Capital team can assist you with all aspects of the transaction, from developing a strategy to planning and fine-tuning the corporate and tax structure applicable to the sale transaction.

Additional expertise

At Lavery, our firm is made up of professionals practising in a wide range of legal fields. We can advise you on all the legal aspects of your business (including labour law, intellectual property, commercial agreements and regulatory compliance), as well as in preparing for a financing round or the sale of your business, reviewing its legal situation and preparing for due diligence by investors or potential buyers.

We also have extensive experience in corporate and tax structuring, and our team of tax lawyers regularly works with entrepreneurs to align their business structure with their operations or optimize it in order to sell.
