Barristers & Solicitors
BERNARD (BEN) FEINTUCH JD
Bernard Feintuch is a graduate of Osgood Hall Law School and has practised law in Ontario for over 40 years. Prior to starting his own private practice, Bernard started the law firm of Feintuch, Balitsky and Alter with two partners from 1975 to 1991, specializing in real estate development and corporate and commercial matters. Bernard then went into private practice and continues to specialize in real estate development, corporate law, and commercial law.
With a broad range of practical experience in both residential and commercial real estate as well as commercial and corporate law, Bernard practises with a particular emphasis on land development, subdivision development, condominium development, builders transactions, and purchases of commercial plazas and apartment buildings. These areas of law have given him the opportunity to gain experience in mortgage financing, both on a private and institutional level, allowing him to act both as the borrower’s solicitor and as the lender’s solicitor on major transactions. Bernard has acted for major banks and trust companies in mortgage default proceedings including issuing the statement of claim, taking possession of the property, managing the seized property and eventually selling the property. He has also assisted counsel in the enforcement of his clients’ rights in real estate related litigious matters.
Additionally, Bernard has assisted developers and homeowners in obtaining private and conventional financing for first, second, and third mortgages. Bernard has arranged private financing for amounts ranging from $50,000 to many millions of dollars. He uses his knowledge and expertise in mortgage law to help facilitate a smooth closing of the mortgage transaction and thinks creatively to arrange mortgages that satisfy the needs of both borrower and lender.
