Michael (Mick) Levin practices property law, corporate and commercial law, environmental law, and civil litigation. Mick represents buyers, sellers, and lenders in both residential and commercial real estate transactions of all scales. In addition to property matters, Mick especially enjoys working with businesses to plan for success by providing review and drafting of corporate documents including asset and share purchases and sales, shareholder agreements, employment and service contracts, intellectual property agreements, leases, and more. Although he prefers to resolve clients’ litigation files by negotiated agreement whenever possible, Mick has advocated for his clients and argued cases before the Residential Tenancies Board, Workers’ Compensation Board, Probate Court, Small Claims Court, Nova Scotia Supreme Court, and the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal.
With a background in economics and an MBA, he strives to provide prudent advice in plain language, taking into account the individual preferences and circumstances of each client. By delving into the underlying needs and applying innovative problem solving and strong advocacy skills, Mick works to resolve clients’ legal issues effectively and efficiently.
Beyond the office, Mick is passionate about travel and outdoor recreation. He has hiked, biked, paddled, and climbed in dozens of countries and served on the Board of Directors or as a pro bono advisor to the Climb Nova Scotia Association since 2008. From time to time he also works as a small-ship expedition guide in the polar regions, piloting watercraft, leading hikes in polar bear country or on visits to penguin colonies, and sharing his knowledge of environmental law and policy with passengers.
