Corporate Law Services

Corporate and Securities Lawyer Joseph Chiummiento focuses his practice on transactions in the areas of securities law, finance and mergers and acquisitions.

As a legal counsel and corporate secretary for many TSX and TSX Venture Exchange listed companies, Joseph set up in-house legal departments and gained a keen appreciation for raising money, the IPO process, corporate governance and contract review/drafting.

While his business management expertise cuts across a wide range of sectors including natural resources, financial services, technology and construction, it is his real-world experience that gives him an edge over other corporate securities lawyers: His most trying years that shaped him into the trusted lawyer he is today, were characterized by the market crash in the fall of 2008. As the corporate secretary of a junior mining company on the Toronto Venture Exchange attempting to close a flow-through financing in a suddenly bearish market, Joseph guided the company to a quick and successful close; not just in his named capacity but more so as a trusted advisor and strategist.

His experience also helps Joseph appreciate the decision-making process from the perspective of his clients ensuring that legal advice is supportive of management decisions. Clients from the corporate finance world and small & medium-size businesses alike value his direct approach and big-picture thinking. With unexpected creativity and a “can-do-attitude”, Joseph quickly becomes an indispensable source of unbiased guidance.

When Joseph is not on the ice coaching kids hockey, hiking or traveling for the next adventure you will find him honing his entrepreneurial side and developing the next start-up, and tuning into the latest business trends.
