Barriston’s municipal law practice, and its reputation for service and excellence, dates back to the early 1900s when our predecessor partner, Osmond J. Rowe, Q.C., served as the solicitor for the Town of Barrie in 1948. He was instrumental in Barrie’s elevation to its city status. Barriston has assembled a group of lawyers who devote their practices exclusively to this specialized area of law.
We provide advice to municipalities as well as private sector clients including developers, land owners, ratepayer groups, and land use planners on a broad range of issues related to municipal law and regulation. We also advise governments on matters including the drafting and enforcement of by-laws, land development agreements, zoning matters, and municipal administration and finance.
