Eric Carmona - Stikeman Elliott LLP

Within: Real estate

Stikeman Elliott LLP’s real estate group has close relationships with a wide range of developers, investors, lenders and property owners and occupiers, but is particularly well known for its work for institutional investors. In a recent example, Toronto-based group co-lead Mario Paura advised Strathallen Capital on its C$702.9m acquisition of a portfolio of 44 retail properties from OneREIT — subsequently, Toronto’s Vince Imerti (who ‘provides great service and clear strategy’) advised AIMCo on the acquisition of six of the properties. Toronto-based Eric Carmona is a leading figure in the team and advised 3 Angels Holdings on its sale of the iconic Grouse Mountain Resort. Also in Toronto, Douglas Klaassen advised Hudson’s Bay on an series of transactions, including agreements to lease retail space within certain of its department stores. In Montreal, department co-chair Stefan Fews assisted Canadian pharmacy chain the Jean Coutu Group with the real estate aspects of its acquisition by Metro, which involved nearly 200 buildings across Quebec. On the development front, Calgary’s Greg Plater continues to act as corporate and project counsel to the West Campus Development Trust on the C$4bn West Campus Project. The team is also strong in Vancouver, where Ross MacDonald QC is advising Concord Pacific Group on the high-profile demolition of the Georgia and Dunsmuir viaducts. Toronto-based Melissa Schyven, who advised CT REIT LP on its C$200m acquisition of seven properties from RioCan REIT, and Vancouver’s Richard Jackson are also noted.
