“I’ve worked with Jodie Masson for more than 10 years on various commercial and retail property projects. In my opinion Jodie is the best commercial property lawyer I have worked with. She is straight forward, reliable and has a deep understanding of property law. We’ve worked together on some very successful leasing and capital transactions. I’ve relied on her counsel when forming important commercial decisions. We can rely on her firm to produce accurate documents efficiently and effectively, and always with a quick turnaround.”
