Areas of Focus

Project Financing

We have a breadth of experience advising clients on financing arrangements, including those involving multi-unit properties, warehouses, plants, strip malls, shopping centres, and sporting facilities. We act on behalf of both owners and lenders, both at the time of acquisition and during ownership. Our comprehensive knowledge in all aspects of commercial real estate and development ensure the successful financing of capital-intensive projects. With a skilled team of lawyers, we are well-versed in instructing and preparing letters of offer for lenders, as well as advising borrowers regarding the borrowing and placement of security.

Property Development

Property development projects are complex undertakings that involve a multitude of legal issues. We work closely with our clients to bring everything together from the beginning through to the finished development. With a collaborative team approach, we combine our knowledge to assist developers throughout every stage of the project including; acquisition of land, due diligence, planning, obtaining approvals, representation at public hearings, completion of contracts and supporting documents, environmental reviews and audits and appeals to planning authorities.

Residential & Mixed Use Industries

As our community continues to grow, so does the need for developments which incorporate various classes of use. From revitalized urban residential/commercial developments to industrial/commercial projects, our team has assisted many of our clients through the process of planning, financing, constructing and operating various mixed use developments.

Waterfront Development

Because of our location on the Atlantic Ocean, waterfront development has become a significant practice area at BOYNECLARKE LLP. As waterfront development and re-development has experienced a significant resurgence in recent years, we have assisted many projects within Atlantic Canada in this industry.
