Pamela Green comes to the firm as a partner with 25 years' experience in real estate law. Her practice encompasses a comprehensive range of commercial real estate matters, including land development and planning; real estate acquisition, disposition and financing; mortgage remedies; real estate disputes; and general corporate commercial matters.

Qualified to practise law in both Ontario and England & Wales, associate Sawsan Selwyn has rich experience in real estate law on both sides of the Atlantic. She represents sellers, purchasers, institutional and private lenders, real estate developers, REITS and other real estate investors in all aspects of commercial real estate transactions - including the acquisition, disposition, financing and leasing of raw land, offices, and industrial and retail properties.
