When the stakes are high, top real estate players across Canada and the US turn to our team. Our sights are always on the deal as we fearlessly tackle issues and negotiate agreements that work.

Complex transactions involving significant properties and portfolios call for a team with broad expertise in tax, mergers and acquisitions, project finance, capital markets and environmental law.

We’ve forged long-standing relationships with many of the largest and most sophisticated institutional real estate investors and developers. And we advise most of the country’s largest pension funds and institutional investors, both domestically and internationally. Immersing ourselves in your issues, we make complicated legal situations clear, pay close attention to the details and help you build a sound strategy for what comes next.
