Meet David D. Lyons

Commercial Real Estate Lawyer

"I like practising real estate law and the unique challenges which arise in the course of our work. Each deal or lease presents its own set of circumstances, and like putting together the pieces of a puzzle, it is my job to ensure that all of the pieces of the deal fit together to ensure my client is best protected both now and in the future."
