Mark C. McElree focuses his practice on real estate transactions, finance, and oil and gas matters. His clients include real estate developers, owners and investors, national and multi-national corporations and money center banks, insurance companies, and other financial institutions.
Mark also represents owners, producers, and lenders in oil, gas, and other natural resource transactions. Mark’s broad-based real estate development and lending expertise includes representing clients on complex development projects, acquisitions and sales of real estate, sale-leasebacks, syndicated credit facilities, and structurally challenging lending transactions.
He also has diverse experience working with clients in the leasing, operation, and management of office, industrial, retail, hotel, and multi-use projects as well as in the development of master planned residential communities.
A tax accountant with Arthur Andersen & Co. prior to practicing law, Mark analyzes and structures sophisticated transactions requiring his financial and legal knowledge and experience. He works collaboratively with his clients, always taking into account the impact of an individual transaction on the overall business operations and goals of the client.
As a result, he is able to structure the transaction with both current and future business needs in mind. Mark also makes it a priority to thoroughly analyze each transaction and present a structure that eliminates potential issues before they become problematic.
This detailed attention and dedicated client service, combined with Mark’s determined but easygoing nature, keeps even the most difficult and time consuming deals on track for success.
Mark has guided clients through extremely complex transactions, such as the development of a 424-unit luxury high rise apartment tower, the first “for rent” construction in Toronto since the institution of rent control in that city, and the closing of a multi-regime note, hotel / condominium/retail construction loan on behalf of a banking syndicate.
