At SMGS, we advise and counsel our clients on all matters relating to and touching on business law. Business law is the body of law which applies to and governs the conduct of business, including commercial transactions. Whether you are an entrepreneur starting out in business or a sophisticated commercial party, SMGS has the knowledge, the resources and the approach to help you grow your business while mitigating legal risk.
Our approach is both technical and holistic. Our knowledge of the law is complemented by our knowledge of how our clients conduct business – how they operate, the areas in which they operate, and their corporate and financial positions and histories. We take learning about our clients very seriously. This knowledge allows us to provide quality advice and carefully tailored legal solutions.
The business law group at SMGS, headed by Me David Sternthal, is supported in its practice by the litigation group. The litigation group handles all legal disputes, provides our clients with litigation support, and with strategic insight into the drafting and preparation of contracts and agreements.
We advise national and international clients on business operations in Quebec and throughout Canada, including regulatory requirement.
