Bird's Eye View: Comparing Chinese Investment into North America and Europe
Chinese investors poured a record US$40 billion into Europe and North America in 2015 as they continue to identify new business opportunities in the regions.


Our Canada lawyers advise clients on some of the most significant cross-border transactions in the North American market, such as Catamaran Corporation’s US$12.8-billion merger with OptumRx, UnitedHealth Group's pharmacy benefits business. We also represented the first US real estate investment company to create a Canadian REIT to list its US assets on the Toronto Stock Exchange — one of the most successful cross-border REIT offerings in recent years.

As market leaders in Corporate & Securities, Labour & Employment and Litigation, our strength is the ability to combine our knowledge of Canadian federal, provincial and local laws with an international perspective to provide clients with services no other Canadian law firm can. We work closely with colleagues across our offices in the Americas, Europe and Asia to stay abreast of the regulatory, investment and trade trends in those regions and to help clients achieve their domestic and international business objectives.

The quality of our work is reflected in the number of the leading global and Canadian multinationals and financial institutions that seek our advice on complex matters in industries including retail, manufacturing, mining, transportation, pharmaceuticals and oil and gas. With more than 50 years of experience in the Canadian market, we are committed to helping clients fulfill their ambitions in an increasingly complex global marketplace.
