Thomas W. Brown, Owner
Tom graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School in 1993 and was called to the bar in 1995. After spending almost 4 years with Martin Hillyer Bryant and Bryant & Associates, Tom struck out on his own in March of 1999, and hasn’t looked back.
Tom’s practice focuses on corporate and commercial work, including acting on new incorporations, buying and selling businesses (both asset and share purchases and sales), corporate re-organizations, corporate estate freezes, employment contracts, commercial leases, secured lending transactions, shareholder agreements, and a wide variety of commercial contracts. If it doesn’t already exist, Tom is more than happy to create it from scratch! Tom also handles commercial litigation/contract disputes, construction liens, and enforcement proceedings.
As with any corporate/commercial practice, Tom and his team also handle the usual personal services required of his clients, including estate planning, the implementation of family trusts, all real estate transactions, rental property leases, and domestic contracts.
Tom’s philosophy regarding client service is simple… return calls, answer emails, and keep the client informed of what’s going on. Tom’s goal is to deliver quality legal services and advice, at a fair and reasonable rate.

Hussein obtained his undergraduate degree at Queen’s University, after which he completed a masters degree in London, England. Hussein attended law school in California, where he played at many of the golf courses on his (long) bucket list. In his office, you can find mementos from some of these memorable courses.
Hussein is a member of the bar in both California and Ontario. He completed his Articles at a firm in downtown Toronto before moving to Hamilton with his family. During his recreational time, he can be found pursuing his passion of fishing on the Grand River or at one of the many beautiful conservation areas in the region. While Hussein, can talk to you about your PUC or ACB, he is equally likely to discuss his latest fishing, golf or travel adventure.

As a result, Hussein understands the various challenges business owners face and how to craft effective legal solutions.
