Nathalie practises in the areas of Real Estate, Corporate/Business and Municipal law.
Nathalie’s real estate practice is focused on cottage country and waterfront properties, which involve unique legal issues relating to access, shore road allowances (OSRA), boathouses, Crown Patents and Leases, severances, and development-related matters. Nathalie is locally-recognized by real estate agents, planners and surveyors for her knowledge and ability to remedy complex title-related matters, and is frequently retained by other lawyers to ensure that they and their clients are well advised as to these unique issues. In this regard, Nathalie has spoken at a number of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) events for the Law Society of Ontario (LSO) and Ontario Bar Association (OBA).
In her corporate/business practice, Nathalie has considerable experience with asset and share transactions, commercial leasing, business restructuring, the implementation of accounting- and tax-based strategies, incorporations, and other general corporate matters. Nathalie has also acted as municipal solicitor for several municipalities within Muskoka.
On a personal level, Nathalie is a proud mother of three children, and enjoys regular travel to her family’s home town in Umbria, Italy. In her younger years, Nathalie was a professional figure skater and travelled the world with Disney on Ice.
