Bill Kitay

Bill Kitay Senior Counsel

Bill Kitay is a member of the firm’s Business Law Practice.

Practice

Bill practices in the areas of corporate, commercial, securities, and immigration law.

Bill is one of the few lawyers in the Province of Ontario who is called to the bar both in the U.S. (in New York, Connecticut and the District of Columbia) and in Ontario. He helps Canadian clients do business in the United States and U.S. clients do business in Canada. Bill is the cross-border legal specialist for businesses in the GTA; the one-stop shop for entities large and small if they have any governance issues, investment opportunities or are considering entering into a fundamentally transformative transaction. The business judgment that Bill has forged over the course of his distinguished career combined with his world-class education and training make him uniquely qualified to provide creative, practical answers for corporate and commercial clients.

Bill’s business training and knowledge complements his considerable cross-border experience to give him a distinct perspective that allows him to work with clients not only as a skilled practitioner, but as a trusted team-member as well. He is not just a specialist in the law; he is a problem solver for his clients.
