"Barry Abramson is a skillful and honorable deal maker who is responsive to his client's wishes and goals and explains complex concepts for informed decision making. Barry was instrumental in development of the Spire facility at 65 Bay Street. Barry's experience, intelligent weaving of the complex deal, and ability to explain the nuances to the project's many lenders and equity funders gave them confidence to both invest and increase their involvements in the project. His negotiations with the end user on the intricate lease agreement created a "win-win" for both sides."
