Business Law Services

Incorporation

When starting a business, one of the first decisions you must make is whether to incorporate your business or not. When a company incorporates, it becomes its own legal business structure set apart from the individuals who founded the business. Incorporating a business affects many different aspects of the business such as liability, taxation, control of the business, and finances. When making this choice it is important to seek legal counsel in order to weigh your options and make an informed decision.

Partnerships & Shareholder Agreements

Partnership and Shareholder Agreements are agreements that clarify your rights and obligations as well as the rights and obligations of all the partners and shareholders of a business. These agreements are a set of rules that govern the company as well as the relationship between all the partners and shareholders. It is important that these agreements are specific, non-ambiguous, and touch upon all major issues and potential problems that may arise when operating a business.

Purchase & Sale Of A Business

When purchasing a business, whether it be a retail operation, service enterprise, manufacturing company or a distribution network, we will assist you in negotiating the purchase or sale price and conditions. Our Business Law group consists of some of the best business lawyers in Toronto who will ensure that your rights are protected.

Commercial Leases

Our attorneys have years of experience in the drafting and negotiating leases for retailers, manufacturers, service companies and professional practices, and can suggest creative and effective modes of business development.

Share Transfers

New shareholders and business partners must be properly incorporated into a business. Proper incorporation requires a share transfer agreement to be drafted. Here at Costa Law, our attorneys have the skill and knowledge necessary to help you draft a share transfer agreement that will protect you and the structure of your business.

Asset Purchases

An asset purchase requires an asset purchase agreement (APA), which is an agreement between a buyer and seller that finalizes the terms and conditions related to the purchase and sale of a company’s assets. Whether you are the buyer or purchaser, we will help you draft an agreement that reflects your best interests.

Testimonials

What our clients are saying.

If I could give David Costa more than 5 stars I would. The moment that I called him in 2015, I knew right away that he was the right person to represent my son. He gave my son a list of things to do to help his case. David replied to every email that I sent to him and answered all my questions no matter how many times I asked the same questions. He even talked to my son when he thought my son was not doing enough to get the best possible outcome. We are pleased with the outcome of the case. Excellent lawyer! Highly recommended! Definitely Toronto’s Top Lawyer!

David Costa was my brother’s defense lawyer on a first degree murder charge. I called the lawyer the moment my brother was arrested. There was absolutely no physical evidence against my brother. There were alibi witnesses and coroner evidence that he could not have killed the victim. And Mr. Costa did everything we asked him to do as our lawyer. He called the alibi witnesses, he made sure all evidences are preserved, he hired a PI and did an investigation of his own. He did everything he could to save my brother from jail. Our whole family is grateful to David Costa for his knowledge, experience, support and strong motivation. David is a very good man.

The charges I had were dismissed, however along the way I spoke to a couple lawyers. I stuck with David because I could tell he had a level of knowledge others didn’t. He also was always very quick to get back to me. If I ever need a lawyer in the future it will be David for sure and I also recommend him to anyone needing legal assistance.

The best adoption lawyer in Toronto! David Costa walked us through everything, and was with us every second on the big day! We did not have many face to face meetings, as he communicates very well via email. This is definitely a lawyer who takes his time to do it correctly. We honestly can’t thank him enough!

Excellent lawyer with great work ethics, professionalism, knowledge and understanding. I hired him to represent me for traffic violation. He explained me everything about the case and expected outcomes. He studied my case in detail and in the end got the case dismissed. Highly recommended.
