Commercial Leasing for International Corporations
Our Commercial Leasing Group is an especially important resource for U.S. companies. While Canadian lease documents and practices are very similar to those in the United States, there are some critical differences. We provide the most current information on these differences as well as counsel on local law, title issues and certain additional rent charges that are unique to Canada.
Our familiarity with the concerns and experiences of U.S. companies who have established themselves in Canada positions us to provide important and timely advice that avoids unnecessary delays, costs and exposure. We have broad experience dealing with virtually every significant developer in this country and are familiar with their documents, people and practices.
Our lawyers are ranked by their peers as Repeatedly Recommended in Property Development and Most Frequently Recommended in Property Leasing in the The Lexpert/American Lawyer Guide to the Leading 500 Lawyers in Canada.
