Adam is a Partner in Minden Gross LLP's Commercial Leasing Group whose practice focuses primarily on commercial leasing transactions, including drafting and negotiating retail, office and industrial leases and ancillary documentation.
Adam represents landlords and tenants of all sizes, including REITs and Pension Funds with national property holdings as well as retailers with locations across Canada and the world. Adam often partners with clients to function as an outsourced real estate legal department. He also has experience working with companies under bankruptcy and insolvency legislation in order to reorganize their real estate portfolios.
Adam has worked with several clients to develop precedent documentation for leasing of “green roofs” in Ontario with a view to sustainability. This ranges from the installation of solar panels that produce electricity to live plant growth for the purpose of cleaning air and cooling buildings. In some cases, Adam helped produce a new revenue stream for many of his clients.
Clients often tell us that the reason a deal was completed was because Adam truly understood the needs of both parties. It is his keen ability to tailor a transaction to his clients' business goals that ensure that difficult situations are resolved quickly.
Adam’s honesty, integrity, and sense of humour come through in everything he does. This is not only valued by clients but by members of the firm. With a Jerry Seinfeld poster in his office and a smile on his face you always know what you get when dealing with Adam.
