Minden Gross, with its history of being counsel and adviser to significant real estate projects and transactions throughout Canada, naturally has as well a highly skilled and experienced group of lawyers with hands on practical experience in matters of construction law, finance, and litigation.
Our team of lawyers likes to be involved early on with a project, but we are also there to help our clients if things go wrong. We are able to assist clients in addressing the legal challenges of engaging in the development, financing, performance and management of major construction projects. This breadth of experience enables us to handle the complete spectrum of issues arising before, during and after project completion. We are also more than ready to jump into the fray to ensure that our clients are able to assert their rights when a project comes off the rails, and to ensure that they are best able to limit their exposure and defend them from claims made against them. And if the project sinks into insolvency, our Construction Group has unique and in-depth experience which allows them to provide specific and timely construction insolvency advice, whether it be for a developer/owner whose business is failing and who is looking to restructure, or for a contractor who is on the job when the developer goes under and needs to ensure payment and the continuation of work and/or the supply of materials to the project.
Members of the Construction Group frequently work with other practice areas within the firm to address the issues associated with various aspects of the project which may include tax, finance, real estate, and, when necessary, litigation. Minden Gross’ full range of practices enables us to offer clients sophisticated legal services that are both coordinated and efficient.
