Real Estate

A cornerstone of business.  From the ground up.

Legal issues concerning real property can make or break a business, and those issues are diverse. In any sector – commercial, industrial, retail or vacant land – we deliver the legal foundation to take our clients to new heights. 

We act for developers, owners, landlords, tenants, property managers and financial institutions to structure, negotiate and close all manner of real property transactions – from acquisitions, to mortgages and other structured financings, to leases, to access agreements, to unique purpose-built land agreements.

While most firms can conduct a real estate transaction, our lengthy industry experience allows us to truly analyse the business issues involved and help clients develop business strategies for buying, financing, developing, selling, and leasing property.

Our real estate group regularly acts on the acquisition and disposition of commercial properties, all aspects of real estate financing, drafting and negotiation of commercial leases for both landlords and tenants, construction and development of single site projects, sub divisions and high rises, and land use development and planning for individuals, companies and municipalities.

We also assist our clients with the purchase, sale and financing of single family homes, condominium units and cottage properties.

As we are a full-service firm, our group is able to leverage the expertise of our Banking & Financial Services, Business Law and Litigation groups in order to provide seamless service to our clients during any real estate transaction. With our Litigation & Dispute Resolution team, we also act for clients in all manner of real property disputes, including landlord & tenant rights, commercial leasing and mortgage enforcement.
