About Wires Law
Founded in 2013 in Toronto, Wires Law is a business law firm delivering legal services to entrepreneurs and small and medium sized businesses across Canada. Unlike law firms who only bill by the hour, the firm provide fixed fee services for most client matters. We are also the home of Launch[x] a fixed fee legal services program for launching and maintaining your startup or growth company.
Wires Law acts as counsel to software companies, app developers, e-commerce retailers, consulting firms, digital media companies and hi-tech startups. Our clients and their executives answer to boards of directors and shareholders, hire and fire employees, negotiate and sign contracts, invent new products, license technologies, raise capital and deal with a host of legal issues every day. We advise on and help clients reduce legal risks in their daily decision making processes and in the agreements they enter.
While we maintain a virtual office space and mailing address in Toronto, our services are delivered almost entirely virtually and paperless.

What Our Clients Are Saying
John is a fantastic entrepreneur and one of the best corporate lawyers in Canada. He is very personable and clearly understands the massive paradigm shifts that have been created as a result of technological advances and the incredible entrepreneurial revolution that has helped to define the 21st century. With that being said, I had no choice but to hire him as my company’s legal counsel and if you value the well-being of your enterprise, I recommend that you do the same.
John was very easy to work with and certainly knows Technology and Law. I found his advise to be well thought out and to my best advantage. John balanced time, costs and the potential for success very well and conveyed that to me in an easy to understand manner that allowed us to resolve the case to the best outcome.
