A boutique Toronto law firm serving
clients across Canada since 1987


Papazian | Heisey | Myers has been a trusted source of legal advice for national and international business clients since 1987. Our roster includes lawyers in Toronto who are recognized leaders with a reputation for excellence in their practice of business law.

Our approach to cultivating long-term relationships with business clientele has earned us the trust and confidence of clients of diverse size, structure, and business activity, ranging from blue-chip institutional clients to midsize and small corporations, partnerships, and other business entities, to individuals carrying on their own business activities or investing with others.


Our firm provides legal advice to match our clients' need for cost-sensitive and high-quality service. With a full team of experienced staff and access to state-of-the-art legal technology, we provide service in a full range of corporate and commercial matters -including business start-up, business funding, day-to-day legal needs, expansions, mergers, reorganizations and restructurings, sales, succession and business wind-ups.


We also help clients find strategies for navigating contentious business issues. We provide thorough factual and legal analysis to help clients make informed decisions on options for resolving disputes, either by alternative methods or, where necessary, through litigation. Some of our lawyers have also acted as mediators and arbitrators and are able to leverage these perspectives to help clients end their disputes efficiently and advantageously.


Our firm acts as counsel to several large national and international franchisors. We work closely with our clients to ensure the best legal protection for their rights and interests in such areas as:

  • preparing and amending franchising agreements
  • disclosure documents property leasing and purchases
  • legal issues related to operating a franchise
