Strategic Alliance

It is anticipated that the Barrie office will grow with time in response to our client’s needs arising from the explosion of new homes and businesses in Barrie, throughout Innisfil and Friday Harbour and indeed throughout the entire central north Ontario region.

In order to facilitate this growth, we have entered into a strategic alliance with Elliott & Elliott, Barristers and Solicitors, a long established and reputable Barrie law firm. Sheri Elliott, the principal of the firm, focuses her practice on real estate conveyancing, municipal and planning law, environmental law and real estate conveyancing/development matters. While the two firms remain independent in the practice of law, by drawing on the strengths of both firms, we are able to combine our expertise, resources and bench strength, thereby enabling us to provide complete integrated legal services in a broad range of practice areas including:

  • Personal Injury Litigation
  • Real Estate Conveyancing and Transactions
  • Municipal and Planning Law
  • Environmental Law
  • Environmental Liability
