Abraham CostinMcCarthy Tétrault

Home to a notably broad offering, McCarthy Tétrault operates at the top-end of development, property dispute and management, transactional, financing and leasing affairs, acting at a varied array of asset classes including offices, shopping centres, hotels, apartment buildings, resorts and infrastructure projects. John Currie leads the national practice from Toronto, acting on everything from mid- and large-scale secured financings through to development agreements and joint ventures, and is supported by market veteran Abraham Costin, a widely renowned name among developers, pension funds and financial institutions; the pair are based alongside Jamie Orzech who is adept in the acquisition of all asset classes, in addition to ground and sale-back leasing transactions. Over in Vancouver, Keith Burrell KC holds extensive experience in the pre-sale of large residential and mixed-use projects.
