Ronald McKenna

In addition to providing general corporate/commercial law advice to clients, I have extensive expertise advising start-ups and growth-stage companies in negotiating and implementing commercial transactions including corporate finance structures (debt, equity and alternative financing structures), shareholder arrangements, acquisitions, dispositions, mergers and reorganizations. I also have extensive expertise in negotiating shareholder and partnership disputes.

My practice also encompasses e-commerce matters including software licensing and advising on matters for software developers, IT service providers and companies where their business relies on technology.


I act as corporate counsel to many start-ups, growth-stage companies, and SMEs in the Tech, Healthcare, Cannabis, Hospitality Services, Entertainment and Manufacturing industries. I am also in-house counsel and a co-founder of a Cannabis company in the pharma space. I have firsthand knowledge of what it takes to start your own business and the various challenges along the way, including raising capital, shareholder issues and employment law matters, and I am an avid investor in many start-ups.
