WMCZ handles the things most businesses require — corporate registrations, company planning, commercial financing, purchase and sales of businesses and tax law (including income tax, GST and PST). We have extensive experience with business succession planning as well as public and private financing arrangements. Mark Dolan, Kelly Bode, and Michael Stevens are well-versed in these transactions.
We have notable strengths in new and emerging areas. For example, Mark, Jamie and Craig Zawada provide intellectual property advice in ag-biotech, computer law, licensing, trade-marks, trade secret law and others.
