Michael Brown

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

A graduate of the University of Ottawa, Faculty of Law, Michael was admitted to the Ontario Bar in 2010. Michael's practice focuses primarily on representing and providing advice to clients on real estate development, purchase, financing and sale transactions. He also assists clients with business law matters such as lease review and drafting, planning and development proposals.

In 2003, Michael was elected as one of Eastern Ontario's youngest municipal councilors for the Township of Elizabethtown-Kitley. As a councilor, Michael reviewed, debated and voted on by-laws, budgets, proclamations, resolutions, and staff and committee recommendations. Michael continues to serve on various municipal boards and committees for the City of Ottawa. Michael brings to the firm a rare depth of experience arising from his unique background in municipal politics and environmental affairs. These, in addition to Michael's other aptitudes, have proven invaluable to his clients. His in-depth understanding of such matters provides clarity and direction to clients in the fog of bureaucratic restrictions, typical in any real estate transaction.

When Michael is not in the office, he enjoys seeing the latest popcorn action movie, travelling around the Ottawa Valley area on thrifting, local farmer's market and antiquing excursions and visiting his extended family in Brockville.
