OIL ACQUISITION LAWYER: CHRISTOPHER NEUFELD
Corporate mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures and related contract work represents the core of my legal practice. Whether it was during my formative years as a lawyer in New York City working on legal matters arising from Wall Street or at present maintaining a legal practice that operates out of both Calgary, Alberta and Toronto, Ontario and serves business clients the world over, my focus has been on assisting in the advancement of my clients' business interests through the effective application of the law.
The advancement of corporate interests through the effective application of the law is only made possible, in my experience, through a solid understanding of the underlying principles that make businesses succeed. It has in turn become a personal passion to better understand how businesses succeed and fail, in particular with respect to their entering in particular transaction that are intended to profit their business objectives. And it is this knowledge that I am continually striving to bring to my corporate clients' transactions, such that their prospects for success are enhanced. It is an ongoing effort to continually improve the level of corporate legal advice that is put forth.
