Our Group

Miller Thomson’s Real Estate Group provides a broad range of expertise on all transactions, contracts and other matters involving real estate and land development.

Our lawyers form part of the corporate team available to represent clients on multi-faceted transactions. Our advice is integral to the structuring of such transactions as real estate is frequently the most significant asset involved. We also interact with lawyers from our environmental, litigation, labour and employment, and bankruptcy and insolvency groups. We find it invaluable to have available, with absolute immediacy, the expertise and experience that our colleagues offer.
