TORONTO – Mintz is pleased to announce that it has subleased the 28th floor at 200 Bay Street’s South Tower, an iconic pillar of Toronto's Financial District. The firm moved into the nearly 24,000 square feet of space on April 1, 2023.
“We needed an office reflective of who we are now and where we’re headed,” said Mitch Frazer, Managing Partner of the firm’s Toronto office. “We prioritized a space that allowed for continued and sustained growth and served as a physical representation of Mintz’s brand – nimble, entrepreneurial, and forward-thinking. 200 Bay Street met each of those criteria and I speak for all of my Toronto-based colleagues in expressing our excitement in making the move.”
In March, Mintz announced that it was expanding into Canada, to further bolster its global practices in life sciences, private equity, capital markets, and pensions and employment.
The founding team of the firm’s Toronto office included Mitch Frazer, Cheryl Reicin, Michael Akkawi, Eric Foster, and Dr. Lee Johnson. Since then, Mintz has added Partners Matthew Atkey and Brad Tartick, Special Counsel Bernard Kwasniewski, and Of Counsel Matthew Imrie. The firm will continue to grow the office with strategic hires, with a goal to have 20 attorneys by the end of April, 50 over the next 18 months, and 75 within three years.
Situated on the corner of Bay & Front Street, 200 Bay Street is one of the most sought-after office addresses, totaling 1.5 million square feet. The visible and distinguished 24-carat gold-coated windows make Royal Bank Plaza’s presence known in the city while acting as a connective hub connecting the people of Toronto from all over the city and beyond.
Located in the heart of the Downtown Core, the building is just steps from Union Station, a major transit hub for the TTC, GO Train, VIA Rail, and the UP Express for easy travel to Pearson International Airport.
