Having been active in the capital markets for over 16 years, being qualified to practice law in both the U.S. and Canada and having worked at a large international firm, Conrad leverages his cross-border experience and relationships to connect clients to funding sources and strategic business opportunities and to devise practical, effective and creative routes of action to overcome challenges. He has significant experience advising local and international clients on a variety of matters related to cross-border public and private mergers and acquisitions, equity and debt offerings, including seed capital, venture capital financings, spin outs, initial public offerings, reverse mergers, PIPES and secondary public offerings.  He also regularly advises clients on other matters including takeover bids, negotiating commercial agreements and ongoing corporate governance and securities law compliance.

Conrad’s diverse work on behalf of clients has given him a wealth of understanding across a wide variety of sectors such as mining, energy and technology-related fields.
