Our real estate services in brief

Our real estate team offers valuable rental advice to lessors and tenants of all sizes and asset categories. We have extensive expertise with mixed-use developments combining residential, retail and office spaces, and know-how to draft leases that take each of these uses into account. We also have an impressive operational track record. Our lawyers can help you handle owner-tenant or owner-government interactions and assist you with negotiation, litigation, subletting, or renewing or amending leases.

Promoters, investors and lenders come to us for real estate developments of all types and scales, including commercial, industrial, multi-residential and mixed-use projects. From financing to contract negotiation to managing partnerships, our lawyers, notaries and tax experts are here to advise, guide and support you. 

With us, you can rest assured that the purchasing, financial, municipal, environmental and regulatory aspects of your project are in good hands from inception to completion.

Owners, co-owners, lenders, investors, condominium associations, promoters, lessors, tenants and real estate managers deal with a multitude of challenges on a daily basis. We are true professionals in the field and can help our clients with disputes arising from purchase and sales agreements, commercial leases, mortgage recourses, service contracts, or cases involving injunctions, seizures, and other extraordinary remedies.

We are one of the only firms in Quebec offering a full range of legal services for selling and acquiring real estate assets. Parties call on our assistance with nearly all large real estate transactions in the province.

We work with clients on a wide range of real estate transactions throughout Quebec, from the simplest to the most complex, including transactions involving real estate investment trusts (REITs).

We fully understand the challenges and hurdles inherent to real estate transactions and can help you with anything, from negotiating financing, to executing agreements, to managing your properties.

Our Clientele

We carry out transactions and provide services in support of a large variety of issues for all participants involved in a real estate project. We counsel buyers and sellers, as well as developers, condominium syndicates, contractors, engineers, architects, and owners and tenants of commercial, residential and industrial properties, including individuals, corporations, franchisors and franchisees. Because our expertise is so vastly diversified, we are also called upon to represent hotel operators, resort managers, golf clubs and outdoor companies having to deal with increasingly complex municipal and environmental regulations.

We mainly act on behalf of large national retailers and franchisors, and major housing or commercial building managers and owners, as counsel in the negotiation of commercial leases, rental and subletting offers, lease assignments, commercial exclusivity agreements and non-competition agreements.

To optimize invested capital, real estate transactions and real estate projects often require the implementation of a particular legal and tax structure. We draw upon our firm’s broad spectrum of expertise in environmental law, municipal law, tax, urban planning and financing to provide our clients with a complete solution to complex real estate challenges.


Our experts’ continuous involvement with real estate and construction organizations and associations allows us to maintain good relationships with the different sector participants.

We also work closely with land surveyors, city planners, project managers and owners, brokers and real estate agents.
