Jamison Young is often in the centre of real estate and development in Ottawa.

As a partner at Borden Ladner Gervais, Young has played a key role in several prominent private and public-sector real estate transactions, including the development of stadiums, hospitals, transit systems, office complexes, retail and multi-unit residential developments and other mixed-use projects.

But his passion for real estate development in Ottawa extends beyond the legal realm. Drawing on his professional expertise, Young was the founding chairperson of the Urban Land Institute chapter in Ottawa, which now has approximately 100 local members and is fostering progressive development thinking in the National Capital Region’s real estate and development community.

He’s also working to raise the level of expertise across the industry as a Carleton University instructor, teaching the legal dimensions of the school’s real estate development course.
