REAL ESTATE, CORPORATE/COMMERCIAL/BUSINESS, WILLS & ESTATES and FAMILY LAW LAWYER
As the firm's Senior Solicitor, Matthew's practice focuses primarily on residential & commercial real estate, corporate/commercial & business law (including contracts, transactions, leasing and business structuring), wills & estates, and family law (including domestic contracts, separation agreements, child custody, spousal support, and division of assets).
He is meticulous in assessing title problems and suggesting solutions prior to the closing of real estate transactions.
He assists businesses in developing the corporate and partnership structures and business agreements that work best for their commercial goals.
He works with testators, estate trustees, and beneficiaries to ensure that the provisions of last wills and testaments are correctly interpreted and implemented. He also helps those making or receiving powers of attorney to structure those powers in the most effective and efficient ways possible.
His family law work involves careful consideration of family and asset structures to ensure that agreements are later defencible in court.
Matthew received his LL.B. and LL.L. from the University of Ottawa. Prior to law school, he earned his B.A. in political science at Concordia University. When he is not busy assisting his clients he is usually enjoying his free time as a husband and father, practicing martial arts or eating at a good Asian restaurant.
