Burstall LLP (Burstall) is pleased to announce that it was part of a deal team that won the Corporate and Strategic Deal of the Year Award (US$10mm – $25mm category) at the 2016 M&A Advisor Awards Gala, for its legal work on the sale and divestiture of Korite Minerals Ltd. (Korite Minerals) and Canada Fossils Ltd. (Canada Fossils). Burstall would like to congratulate the shareholders of Korite Minerals and Canada Fossils, as well as Paladin Group CMS, business advisor and Felesky Flynn, tax counsel, who won the award alongside Burstall.
Burstall represented the shareholders of Korite Minerals and Canada Fossils with a team led by Doug McCartney, that included Sylvia De Angelis and Sarah Magee.
“The Korite transaction was a unique transaction due to a number of factors. It was more complex than most transactions of this size and involved a multitude of extraordinary legal issues,” said Doug McCartney, Managing Partner of Burstall. “The purchaser was an industry participant and was the perfect fit to continue the companies and to continue to grow the initiatives put in place and established by the vendors’ management. Burstall helped maximize shareholder value, while ensuring that the transaction proceeded smoothly and to the satisfaction of all parties involved”.
Along with possessing extensive transactional experience at the local, national and international level, Burstall takes a client-centered approach that helps reduce any transaction-related uncertainty or apprehension. As I often tell my clients, “we’ll help you make the decision that’s right for you. Once that decision is made, we’ll take care that your interests are protected and that you understand all of the different facets of the transaction and how they affect you, at closing and beyond.”
