Michael Thomas Brown

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

In 2003, Mike was elected as one of Eastern Ontario's youngest municipal councillors for the Township of Elizabethtown-Kitley. As a councillor, Mike reviewed, debated and voted on by-laws, budgets, proclamations, resolutions, and staff and committee recommendations. Mike 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.

Mike continues to serve on various municipal boards and committees for the City of Ottawa. When Mike is not in the office, he enjoys travelling around the Ottawa Valley with his wife Angela and visiting his extended family in Brockville.
