David is a Partner in our Commercial Real Estate and Leasing Groups where his practice focuses on providing clients with advice on the acquisition and disposition of commercial property, development, financing, leasing, and franchising of commercial, industrial, retail, and mixed-use properties.
Previous to joining Minden Gross LLP, David directed the central legal team for the business and operations at one of Canada’s largest real estate development and operating companies. With this experience, David views a transaction from all sides, having experienced negotiations as a representative of buyers, sellers, landlords, and tenants in private practice or as counsel from the business perspective. It enables him to proactively mediate issues before they arise.
In his spare time, David loves traveling, especially where he can have the chance to practice his French or Italian language skills. David is a huge basketball fan (particularly of the Raptors) and while his golf game leaves a lot to be desired, the Masters’ weekend is a fixture in David’s calendar every spring.
