Practice

Early in his legal career, Brian specialized in real estate law and took over the residential real estate practice of the law firm.  He has developed and expanded his practice to include commercial real estate transactions, builder and developer deals, and related municipal and administrative law work.  Today, real estate transactions include single family residential, multi-family residential, commercial, farmland, development as well as mortgage (both lender and borrower) and secured financing transactions.  Municipal and administrative law includes land severances, consolidations, re-zoning, minor variances, official plan amendments, development and site plan agreements.  Utilizing municipal and real estate expertise, Brian was involved in the registration of one of the first vacant land condominiums in Southwestern Ontario.  The growth of the real estate practice increasingly required corporate interests.  In 2001 Brian took-over the corporate and commercial practice of the firm.  He presently manages the corporate books for 100+ clients dealing with 500+ corporations.

Brian attended McMaster University from 1985-1989.  During that period he obtained his Bachelor of Commerce Degree.  He graduated “first” in his class.  Subsequently, he attended the University of Western Ontario’s Faculty of Law program and graduated with his Bachelor of Law degree in 1992.  In 1994 Brian completed his Articles and the Law Society’s Bar Admission Course from which he graduated with honours in its Real Estate program.
