Mayer Brown lawyers assist Canadian financial institutions and corporations with US and international matters (outside of Canada) in a number of areas, including mergers and acquisitions, private equity, capital markets, bank finance and tax matters. Our Canada-related work involves representing Canadian companies in connection with their transactions in the United States, Europe and Asia (under US or non-Canadian law). We work closely with local Canadian co-counsel to assist our clients in completing their transactions in Canada.

Our capital markets and financial services lawyers work with a number of Canadian banks on their financing transactions, assisting the banks with their offerings of debt securities, covered bonds, bank notes, structured products, commercial paper and other instruments into US and European markets. We also advise the banks on the securities disclosure and compliance matters related to these offerings and to their investment banking and commercial banking activities in the United States and Canada. We represent the banks as derivatives dealers and assist with their compliance with the Dodd-Frank Act as well as the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) and the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) in Europe, and with derivatives transactional matters. Our financial services colleagues assist in helping the banks address compliance with the Dodd-Frank Act, including the Volcker Rule, the intermediate holding company requirement and other similar matters.
