Osler is pleased to announce that Laura Webb, a partner in the Vancouver office and member of the firm’s leading Emerging and High Growth Companies Group, is formally joining our Venture Fund Formation practice, further expanding her work in this area with our clients on the West Coast.
Laura brings a strong background working with EHG clients in British Columbia and has experience working with a number of venture funds on fund formation and investment matters. She will now be dedicating more time to this exciting area of the market to help our early-stage, growth and well-established fund clients who need access to the expertise and understanding that she can provide.
“I am thrilled to announce that Laura is going to be part of our leading Venture Fund Formation Group – this significant development in the practice will further expand our Venture Fund Formation expertise on a national level,” says Chima Ubani, Co-Chair of the firm’s Venture Fund Formation practice. “With her experience working with emerging and high growth companies, along with funds in the Canadian ecosystem and on the West Coast in particular, she will be able to provide our clients with some very specialized support and expertise.”
Laura joined Osler’s Vancouver office when it opened in 2015 and previously worked in the firm’s Ottawa office. In addition to advising on fund formation matters, she advises technology companies throughout their lifecycle (from startup through to exit), as well as the angel, strategic and venture capital fund investors that fund technology companies.
Osler’s Venture Fund Formation Group is closely integrated with the firm’s national leading Emerging and High Growth Companies practice, providing a unique service to fund clients at all stages of their lifecycles, from formation, to investments, to exits.
