Commercial Real Estate
Goodmans’ Commercial Real Estate Group is one of the most extensive and comprehensive real estate law practices in Canada. The group has built an enviable reputation for conducting complex and sophisticated assignments. From land acquisition to construction and leasing, no one has done it more often or better than Goodmans.
The focus of the real estate practice is commercial clients, and our lawyers have a flair for handling all the legal aspects of projects – from beginning to end.
We are regularly involved in acquisitions, sales and financings of large office buildings, shopping centres, industrial parks and portfolios of properties and mortgages. We handle land purchases and sales, construction, financing, leasing, zoning and tenant negotiations. This group is also involved in bond financings, project financings, synthetic lease-based financings, public/private partnerships, privatizations, real estate syndications and securitizations, real estate investment trusts, loan syndications, co-tenancy agreements, general partnership and limited partnership agreements, as well as structuring transactions involving complex tax, corporate law, withholding and income tax components.
Representing both private and public sector interests, Goodmans works with developers, owners and managers, contractors, consortiums, leading financial institutions, investment dealers and intermediaries, governments, government agencies and crown corporations.
Our commercial real estate lawyers work hand-in-hand with administrative lawyers to add value to land development and re-developments. With one of the largest commercial real estate groups in Canada, Goodmans has the capacity to take on the most sophisticated and intricate transactions.
Beyond the legalities, Goodmans’ lawyers understand the economics and practicalities of a development – financing, ownership and management of real estate.
