BOYNECLARKE's Residential Real Estate Team consists of four Lawyers who practice Real Estate full time (W. Richey Clarke, Q.C., Cyril J. Randall, Allen A. Campbell, and Amanda M. Carew) and six who include it as a significant part of their practice (George P. Ash, George M. Clarke, John S. Fitzpatrick, Q.C., Donald F. Grant, Christene H. Hirschfeld, and Lauren M. Randall). They are backed up by an experienced staff of fourteen paralegals and assistants. This ensures that whenever you call our office someone knowledgeable about your file and property law will be available to assist you. Our Residential Real Estate Team is proud to handle the highest volume of Residential Real Estate practiced by any Law Firm in the Province of Nova Scotia, which includes a large number of migrations under the New Land Registration Act (for more information about this service, please visit Land Titles Registration)
The fact that we are a large firm offers our clients a distinct advantage. Whenever an issue arises requiring specialized knowledge, we consult with lawyers in our other practice areas, notably the Estates, Wills and Trusts, Family Law, Corporate & Commercial, and Financial Recovery Teams. If your matter is to be presented before a municipal council, board or tribunal, we are experienced in these kinds of representations. If court action is required, one of our seasoned litigators will join our team. This is the BOYNECLARKE “family approach”—we leverage expertise within the firm, creating efficiencies while providing you with seamless service.
Our Estates and Family Law lawyers assist with Matrimonial Property and Estates matters. The Corporate & Commercial Law Team assists in tax matters and in matters involving a conveyance between an individual and a company. In the event of a foreclosure on a title, Financial Recovery ensures that all pre-existing problems have been rectified.
Unlike firms that hire freelancers to conduct title searches, we employ two full-time title searchers. This ensures that we have quality control over all of our title searches.
