Gowling WLG announced that Peter Bouzalas has joined the firm’s national corporate group as a partner in Toronto.

The firm’s press release notes that Bouzalas focuses his practice on mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and corporate finance matters for domestic and cross-border private companies and private equity funds. He has experience assisting clients with respect to the incorporation/formation, organization and financing of their companies; the drafting of shareholder, partnership and joint venture agreements; as well as the drafting of a range of commercial agreements.

Over the course of his career, Bouzalas has worked with clients across a wide range of industries — including banking, infrastructure and construction, entertainment, gaming, manufacturing and distribution, software and waste management. Qualified in Ontario and New York, Bouzalas frequently advises U.S.-based companies and private equity funds venturing into Canada.

“We’re delighted to welcome Peter to the firm,” Kathleen Ritchie, partner and head of the Toronto office’s business law department, said in the news release. “His in-depth knowledge of a number of key industries, combined with his Canada/U.S. corporate and M&A experience, will help our clients strengthen their commercial positions on both sides of the border.”
