"We have worked closely with Cam McTavish and the Clark Wilson team since 2010. Cam has assisted us with two of our junior companies from inception to final listing. I find Cam provides us with big firm expertise, but with a level of personal service you get from a smaller firm. Our company has relied on Cam for asset acquisitions, private and public offerings, regulatory and corporate advice in Canada and the U.S. We have always been impressed with the efficiency, speed and expertise demonstrated by Cam McTavish and his staff."

Akash Patel, Vice President and Director, MX Gold Corp.

“Having just completed a very complex international transaction which included parties from three different continents and multiple tax and law jurisdictions, to say I was very impressed would be an understatement. My team and I worked closely with Nafeesa, Cam and Craig and after having worked with numerous law firms in Vancouver over the years, I have found Clark Wilson to be the best. I have found their scope of knowledge to be second to none and the firm has the ability to offer services in almost any area.”
