Condo Conference 2023 Speaker

Legal Roundtable – History of Condos

Fri, Nov 17

Michael Spears

Deacon, Spears, Fedson + Montizambert

Michael Spears was called to the Bar in 1978. He has been certified by the Law Society of Ontario as a Specialist in Civil Litigation since 1994 and taught civil litigation at the Bar Admission Course for 18 years.

Michael has more than 45 years of experience in advising condominium corporations and helping clients navigate the dispute resolution process. He collaborates with them to gain a clear understanding of their issues and concerns with a view to achieving a practical and cost-effective solution.

Michael takes pride in his work as an advocate, having established significant legal precedents in condominium law. He strives to obtain the best possible results for clients,

whether through negotiation, mediation, arbitration, in the courts or before administrative tribunals (such as the License Appeal Tribunal and the Ontario Human Rights Commission). Our clients reach out to Michael for assistance in dealing with contentious issues, including construction deficiencies, shared facilities disputes, first year deficit claims, and claims before Tarion (formerly known as the Ontario New Home Warranty Program).

When he's not at the office, Michael can be spotted with his wife walking their beloved golden retriever. Michael also loves golfing with his two sons. He looks forward to recharging after a week's work by spending weekends at the cottage. Regrettably, he is also a long suffering Leafs fan.
