Since the start of Liza’s career, she has focused her practice exclusively in the area of commercial real estate.  Her practice involves advising clients on a wide range of real estate matters, including acquisitions, sales and financings of industrial, office, retail and residential properties, both tenant and landlord side leasing and all stages of the development process from rezoning through to building occupancy.

Liza believes strongly in ensuring that all members of her team are utilized in the best way possible.  She prides herself on her ability to provide timely, cost-effective top-notch legal services to her clients.

When she is not at the office you will most likely find her walking her Frenchie or trying one of Vancouver’s newest restaurants with friends and a bottle of Barolo.
