Lev Kramar aims to provide quality and timely legal services with a focus on real estate (both residential and commercial transactions), commercial financing, corporate-commercial law and wills and estates. He is fluent in Russian and is able to communicate with clients in both Russian and English.
Prior to joining MasuchLaw LLP, Lev Kramar worked as an associate at a major national law firm where he practiced commercial real estate, corporate-commercial and securities law. Lev has experience providing real estate services to both private and public companies in connection with numerous purchase, sale, leasing and financing transactions.
Lev has had a personal ‘thirst’ for craft beer to grow in Alberta, and has turned this passion into a successful practice specializing in representing many of Calgary’s (and other Alberta towns’) microbreweries as a ‘beer lawyer’. For start-ups he provides everything from corporate structuring, drafting unanimous shareholder agreements (USAs), reviewing commercial leases, and navigating through raising money from investors in compliance with securities legislation. For more established breweries Lev has assisted with shareholder changes/disputes, drafting contracts, and finalizing lending transactions such as the Canada Small Business Financing Program. Many of these clients have turned into great friendships, and Lev has been known to enjoy a beer or two, now and then.
