Jesse Ahuja is a partner at MEP Business Counsel. As a member of the firm since its founding, Jesse has focused exclusively on the formation, financing and mergers & acquisitions of private enterprises. While his clients span a broad range of industries (technology, manufacturing, logistics, professional services, hospitality, food & beverage, e-commerce, retail and financial services, among others), the underlying commonality is that all are privately held growth companies or their investors (private equity/venture capital).

Jesse also regularly advises on complex strategic transactions, partnerships, joint ventures and commercial relationships, both domestically and cross-border.

Prior to joining MEP, Jesse practiced corporate and securities law in the Vancouver office of Stikeman Elliott LLP, advising large public and private corporate clients on mergers, asset and share acquisitions and dispositions, corporate restructurings, corporate governance, and public and private financing. He has also advised public issuers on regulatory compliance matters, corporate governance and continuous disclosure obligations, including ongoing securities law compliance advice to TSX and TSX-V listed issuers.
