Early in his legal career, Brian specialized in real estate law and took over the residential real estate practice of the law firm. He has developed and expanded his practice to include commercial real estate transactions, builder and developer deals, municipal work, and corporate organization. Today, real estate transactions include single family residential, multi-family residential, commercial, farmland, development and mortgage (both lender and borrower) transactions. Municipal work includes land severance, consolidations, re-zoning, minor variances, official plan amendments, development and site plan agreements. The growth of the real estate practice increasingly required corporate interests. In 2001 Brian took-over the corporate and commercial practice of the firm. He presently manages the corporate books for 100+ clients dealing with 500+ corporations.

In 1994, Brian completed his articles and the Law Society’s Bar Admission Course from which he graduated with honours in its real estate program.
