Stikeman Elliott makes it easy to do business with Canada.

As our neighbour, we enjoy an especially close relationship with the U.S. and act on many cross border matters each year. Stikeman Elliott was the first Canadian law firm to open an office in New York in 1983, and we enjoy strong relationships with many U.S. law firms, corporations, financial institutions, and private equity/venture capital groups.

U.S. firms benefit from our counsel on all types of cross border matters, and we work closely with their U.S. in-house and external legal teams to expertly navigate the complex legislative and regulatory environment. With offices across Canada, we are ideally placed to offer advice on both provincial and federal matters, calling on our experts in mergers & acquisitions, banking, financial services, tax, employment & labour, litigation, competition, international trade, and other practice areas to deliver exceptional service to our clients.
