Why Choose AUM Law?


As capital markets change and regulatory requirements become increasingly important, asset managers need comprehensive and flexible legal and regulatory compliance solutions to help them effectively manage their businesses. Our team of lawyers and law clerks have significant experience advising participants in Canadian capital markets, especially registered firms, their management and registered individuals including investment fund managers, portfolio managers, dealers, chief compliance officers (CCOs), ultimate designated persons (UDPs), registered representatives, and independent review committees (IRCs). Before joining AUM Law, our lawyers practised securities, corporate and commercial law at the Ontario Securities Commission and highly regarded Canadian law firms. Our lawyers also have legal experience advising or working as in-house counsel for Canadian and international financial market participants, mutual fund companies, alternative asset managers and merchant banks.
