  • On a number of commercial property insurance settlements and construction contracts covering repair, partial rebuild to full rebuild strategies.
  • Numerous private and commercial property owners in terms of acquisitions by the Crown of land under the Public Works Act.
  • High profile commercial property acquisitions and disposals.
