Incorporation

Whether to incorporate a business is one of the most common dilemmas faced by new entrepreneurs. In order to give you the advice you need, Wises considers the nature of your business and its objectives, financial requirements and likely success, as well as your own personal situation. We can help you determine what is right for you.

Not-for-profit Corporations

We are experienced in planning, incorporating, and organizing not-for-profit corporations. Rob Wise has served on the boards of several not-for-profit organizations, including Canada's oldest hockey organization – the Ontario Hockey Association, and the constitution committee of the Ontario Hockey Federation.

Maintenance

Corporations are required by law to be properly organized and to maintain accurate records. Complying with corporate law can be complex - Wises can take care of these requirements for you, while you focus on making your business a success.

Shareholder Agreements

If your business has more than one shareholder, you need to consider a shareholder agreement. Agreements typically address financing, management, sale and other exit provisions. Wises will listen to your situation, be quick to understand your needs, and tailor your shareholder agreement to suit the needs of you, your partners, and your business.

Re-organizations

Corporate legal needs of a growing business are very different than those of a new business. We work with your accountants and tax advisors to eliminate inefficiencies and implement tax strategies that benefit your business and its shareholders.

Governance

Governance is an issue for every corporation with more than one shareholder, director, officer or employee. We advise developing and established corporations and their boards on governance procedures. Wises advice will keep your corporation moving forward

Private Placements

When your business growth depends on securing equity from private investors, Wises will expertly and strategically guide you through the highly regulated process of private placements.
