Loopstra Nixon Opens New Office in Kingston

Our newest office will be headed by Jenna Morley, former City Solicitor for the City of Kingston.

 Loopstra Nixon is pleased to announce the opening of our newest office, in Kingston Ontario.

 Our expansion to Kingston represents the continuation of the firm’s strategic plan to grow our footprint to serve clients throughout the province and across the country. Together with our Ottawa office, our new Kingston office helps to solidify our presence in Eastern Ontario.

 Led by our new partner, Jenna Morley, the expansion also reinforces the firm’s reputation as a leading law firm advising Canadian landowners, developers and municipalities on municipal, land use planning and development law matters.

 With extensive experience in both municipal law and commercial leasing law, Jenna is uniquely well-suited to advise the firm’s private and public sector clients on all aspects of commercial real estate development.

 As the former City Solicitor and Director of Legal Services for the City of Kingston, Jenna brings deep knowledge and experience with a full range of land use planning and development matters, including Planning Act applications and approvals, development agreements, land acquisitions, and Ontario Land Tribunal appeals.

 Jenna also draws on her prior private practice experience as a commercial leasing lawyer to advise commercial, retail, office and industrial landlords and tenants in a range of commercial leasing matters, including the negotiation of property-related agreements, such as property management, telecommunications, licence, and building services agreements.

 “We are thrilled to bring Jenna on board – she’s a respected municipal lawyer with a laudable career history and the skillset to provide top-tier advice to clients regarding municipal, land use planning and development law matters,” says Quinto Annibale, Chair of the firm’s Municipal, Land Use Planning and Development Law Group.

 “Kingston is a dynamic, growing city and we are excited to play a role in the region’s bright future,” says Loopstra Nixon LLP Managing Partner, Allan Ritchie.

 “I am thrilled to embark on this exciting journey with Loopstra Nixon. Being part of the growth of such a respected law firm in my hometown is a dream come true, and I look forward to contributing to its success,” says Jenna Morley.

 Our Kingston office is conveniently located in the city’s downtown commercial district and will open on Monday, March 25, 2024.
