Robins Appleby Taub

Robins, Appleby & Taub is a business law boutique located in the financial district of downtown Toronto. It is focused on the needs of two major client groups — (i) family and closely held businesses and (ii) the real estate industry.

The Challenge

Because of previous rights given to a neighbouring tenant, Robins, Appleby & Taub received notice from its landlord that it was impossible to renew its existing lease. In response, the firm retained Savills in the fall of 2004 to assist it in evaluating relocation proposals and in relocating to new premises.

Savills Response

Given the limited amount of time to find, lease, and outfit new premises, Savills immediately initiated its FLOW™ process. A detailed Needs Analysis, including the engagement of an interior designer to assess and evaluate future space requirements, was completed. Savills then sourced the downtown real estate market and facilitated an RFP process in which several building owners could “bid” for Robins, Appleby & Taub’s tenancy.

The Solution

The process was successful. Robins, Appleby & Taub is enthusiastic about its relocation to the top floor of Richmond Adelaide Centre, 120 Adelaide St. W. Savills distinctive FLOW™ process identified premises that were not previously proposed by the firm’s landlord. Negotiated by the Savills Negotiating Team, the premises are being leased under extremely favourable terms.

Robins, Appleby & Taub is currently working with Savills Project Management team to oversee the design, construction, furniture, and technology implementation for its new home.
