Practice Areas

Evan’s practice is divided between assisting declarants acquire land and develop condominium plans and assisting condominium corporations and unit owners with condominium related issues.   Evan’s work includes:

  • reviewing and drafting agreements of purchase and sale;
  • assisting with various matters relating to condominium plan registration;
  • attending and acting as chairperson at condominium meetings;
  • drafting condominium documents (declaration, by-laws, and rules);
  • coordinating the collection of common expenses;
  • negotiating and drafting shared facilities agreements;
  • arranging settlements among condominium corporations, suppliers, or unit owners; and
  • commencing enforcement proceedings against a condominium corporation or unit owner.

Recently, Evan has devoted time to assisting condominium corporations collect arrears of common expenses that are no longer eligible to form the subject matter of a lien.  Evan has found that creative thinking and a willingness to understand the positions of opposing parties is key to any successful resolution.

Evan is a former member of the Communications Committee of the Grand River Chapter of the Canadian Condominium Institute.   Evan has written articles that have been published in the Grand River edition of the Condo News and hopes to have more opportunities to have articles published in the future.

Get to Know the Team: Daniel Brockenshire

team

Practice Areas

Daniel works with both the condominium management group and the condominium and subdivision development group.

Daniel is currently working with the condominium and subdivision development group on a variety of development projects with clients across Ontario including residential condominiums, commercial condominiums, condominium conversions, and subdivisions. He also chairs turnover meetings for clients’ registered condominium projects.

Recently, Daniel has been spending much of his time with the condominium management group working on borrowing by-laws for condominiums across Ontario as well as amalgamations for condominiums in Waterloo and London. The amalgamation process is time-consuming, but the goal is helping clients achieve significant cost savings within a few years following amalgamation by consolidating previously duplicated costs (ex. reserve fund studies, audited financials, AGMs, service contracts, etc.).

Involvement

Daniel is involved in the Canadian Condominium Institute (CCI) especially the London and Grand River Chapters. You may have seen him recently at one of the conferences enthusiastically recruiting visitors at the firm’s booth to try the golf putting challenge. Keep an eye out for its return at a future conference!

Personal

Daniel enjoys spending time with family and friends and as most major sports seasons have now kicked off – cheering on his beloved Manchester United, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Oakland Raiders. He also loves traveling and recently had a fantastic hiking experience in Cornwall, England.
