David advises on capital markets transactions and M&A, with a focus on high yield and investment-grade debt offerings (Canadian and cross-border), and is known for his practical and innovative solutions. He has extensive experience representing public and private companies, investment banks and institutional investors on a broad range of transactions both in and outside Canada. These transactions include debt and equity offerings (public and private), restructurings and liability-management transactions (such as debt tenders and exchange offers), PIPEs and other private investments, negotiated merger transactions and hostile and supported takeover bids. Through commentary, David regularly assists Canadian securities regulators on capital markets reforms and is a member of the Practical Law Canada Advisory Board (corporate & securities). David’s vast experience advising on offerings from both Canadian and U.S. perspectives allows him to effectively bridge differences in securities law and practice between Canada and the United States.
