“We were looking to align our space more closely with our brand. As we went through the successive process, Colin was clearly the person to work with. He was the right fit for us. He had all the attributes we were looking for; someone who’s strategic and thinks outside the box and who could adapt his process to serve both of ours. Colin knocked it out of the park for us and I would absolutely recommend Colin.”
Matthew Peters, National Innovation Leader/Partner, McCarthy Tétrault LLP
“Lawyers are tough clients and it’s a tough group to work with. Colliers seems to thrive on this kind of environment. They’ve done a great job for us. Colin has made a study of the legal profession in Vancouver and elsewhere and we’re the beneficiary of it. If I want to know what’s going to be happening in the legal field in Vancouver in 15 years, I might ask one of my partners but I am more likely to ask Colin.”
