For the past thirty-nine years, Peter Mogan has been active as a lawyer, facilitator, businessman and mediator in Ontario and B.C. He has worked closely with his private and public small to mid-sized business clients in a wide variety of tasks from business formation through financings, mergers and acquisitions, contract negotiations, dealings with government, tax planning, and securities compliance. Areas of particular emphasis are assisting the purchase and sale of businesses and financings through senior debt, mezzanine debt, franchising, prospectus exempt offerings, employee share ownership and private equity (with over $1.5 billion in small to medium sized transactions over the past few years – quite unique for a small firm practice). The firm he founded is a leading M&A boutique in British Columbia.
Peter’s experience as an entrepreneur has led to an approach that is practical: finding legal solutions that make business sense. He currently serves and has served as corporate secretary or director on the boards of several B.C. public and private companies as well as a number of not-for-profit organizations where he has facilitated strategic planning, leadership development, conflict management training and team building.
Currently, Peter is a member of the Board of Directors for Food for the Hungry International. He has traveled in Southeast Asia, South America and Africa with FHI and has a keen interest in international development work with a particular focus on micro finance and environmental issues. He has also been involved in small business development projects in the former Soviet states. He also is co-founder of Global Mothers, a social enterprise which empowers artisans and their families and communities in the Developing World by providing a market for their products in North America.
