Forooghian+Co is a Vancouver-based boutique law firm. We deliver the same quality of partner-level advice our clients would expect from a larger firm, but through far more personal and dedicated service. We are proud to be a pillar of support for our clients. For us, it's more than just business.
Our clients include public and private companies in most segments of the market and at various stages in the growth of their businesses. For many of these clients, we provide services that are similar to that of an in-house legal executive. Our aim is to provide advice not only as a lawyer but also as a strategic partner.
We assist clients with most of their business law needs, whether starting or operating a business, buying or selling assets, going public, accessing capital, lending or borrowing money or simply seeking to manage compliance with corporate and securities laws.
Our experience spans a wide range of industries - including blockchain, cannabis, life sciences, natural resources including mining, technology and venture capital.
We practice in many areas of law with significant strength in the following areas:
Capital Markets + Securities We act on most types of capital markets + securities matters including financings and corporate finance-related matters such as IPOs and RTOs.
Corporate + Commercial We provide corporate + commercial advice on most aspects of our clients’ businesses, from initial organization to day-to-day matters.
Corporate Governance We advise on various governance policies and procedures as well as on general duties, liabilities and risk management.

After practicing corporate and securities law as a partner at a leading national firm and then a top-ranked boutique firm, Farzad launched Forooghian+Co to serve clients without the constraints inherent in the traditional law firm model. Now, his most important partners are his clients - and he thinks it works better that way.
Farzad has been recognized by Who’s Who Legal as a leading expert in business law. He obtained a law degree from the University of British Columbia and a Certificate in Mining Law from Osgoode Hall Law School.
