Business/Legal Updates - Webinar 

The occupant of the White House has great implications for Canada and for your business.

After an election cycle that has dominated world news throughout the pandemic, former Vice President Joe Biden will face President Donald J. Trump at the polls on November 3, 2020. It has been one of the most polarizing, volatile contests in US history. The outcome will have unprecedented impact on the American people and economy, but will be far-reaching and global in influence.

Here in Canada, our relationship with the nation’s largest trading partner is at stake. All industries will feel the effect of the President’s trade and diplomatic policies.

  • Matthew Cumming, Managing Partner, New York office and Co-Head of National Private Equity Group,
