Our team of lawyers, clerks, paralegals, and planners have the expertise to quickly identify an array of opportunities and risks, and efficiently implement, solutions, whether through regulatory approvals or otherwise.
Most of our work involves developments in key areas of urban centres. We collaborate with clients to structure ownership and attract investments and funding, and negotiate and advise on municipal requirements and agreements, construction and development management agreements, financing, and sales and leasing.
If they aren’t properly anticipated, municipal and administrative approval processes can delay projects and raise costs. We advise clients on the various steps to complete a development, and have a proven track record in working with local governments to further our clients’ interests. As part of our advice, we also guide clients through municipal processes, tax issues, and environmental issues.
