Our commercial real estate team in Ottawa is highly regarded for its breadth and depth of expertise in local, national and international commercial real estate matters, transactions and financings. Our team works closely with our colleagues across the country and acts for a broad range of clients across the complete spectrum of real estate matters, including urban planning projects, direct and indirect investment transactions, real estate financing, real property acquisitions and divestitures, equity investment structuring, development projects and leasing/franchising arrangements.

We are currently seeking to add to the existing strength of our team by bringing in an associate with strong experience in commercial real estate matters, including commercial leasing, financing, asset-based lending, acquisitions and dispositions, land development, mortgages and franchising. This presents an incredible opportunity to join a world-class group of professionals at an established Canadian law firm with an international legal practice, while working in a collegial and collaborative team that is both professionally and personally rewarding.

  • 4 to 6 years of related experience in either a private practice or in-house setting;
  • exceptional client service, interpersonal and communication skills, strong organizational abilities, attention to detail, and initiative;
  • demonstrated business acumen and a strong commercial understanding; and
  • strong personal and professional integrity and a hard-working and passionate approach.
