Fasken Martineau's Real Estate Practice Group has the experience and capacity to take on simple to the most sophisticated transactions in today's marketplace. We act on behalf of major real estate players in the public and private sectors in the purchase or sale of everything from raw land to trans-provincial or trans-national real estate portfolios. These transactions may have one or more residential, office, retail or industrial components or specific industry sectors, such as hotels, entertainment complex, harbourfront developments, pipelines, railways and energy transportation equipment, etc.
As some transactions frequently require the creation of complex corporate and tax structures and creative solutions to address environmental and other regulatory issues, the group works closely and seamlessly with our firm-wide corporate, tax, environmental and municipal practitioners. Fasken Martineau's Real Estate Practice Group has been involved in some of the major residential and office complexes, shopping centers and power centers and industrial park development projects. Our leasing lawyers act for both landlords and tenants, and provide unique, tailor-made transactions involving flagship locations. With a strong financing practice we also represent high-profile financial institutions, and other lenders and borrowers, and have significant experience in all current real estate structures, including real estate investment trusts (REITS), sale and leaseback transactions and public-private partnerships.
The members of Fasken Martineau's Real Estate Practice Group are regularly acknowledged as leading practitioners by real estate related organizations and magazines including The Canadian Legal Expert Directory, Martindale Hubbell and Best Lawyers in Canada. As many members of the group have worked in-house for real estate industry players, we also bring forth unique business knowledge of clients' concerns and challenges.
