Barry Chase is counsel in our Vancouver Commercial Real Estate Group. Barry has a very diverse practice, with proven success on an extensive list of large, complex projects. His extensive experience as team leader in the areas of land development, infrastructure, rezoning, subdivision, construction, marketing and sales, as well as remediation of contaminated lands and consultation with First Nations includes industrial, commercial, resource, energy, resort and residential projects, both public and private.
