More about Aura LLP
Your Corporate, Real estate, and Entertainment Lawyers

Founded in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, our lawyers are specialists in corporate and commercial law, real estate law, entertainment law, and intellectual property law.  Our team provides tailored legal services to a wide range of businesses and individuals.

Business Incorporation

Are you looking to incorporate your business? We take care of your business’ legal needs so that you can focus on what matters most. We offer business and legal advice to help you structure, acquire, finance, build and sell your company.

Shareholders' Agreements

A shareholders’ agreement is an essential business document for most private corporations. It governs the relationship between shareholders, the corporation, and the board of directors in order to protect shareholders’ interests, set rights and responsibilities, and helps prevent unexpected outcomes and disputes.  Aura LLP regularly assists clients to negotiate, draft, and structure shareholders’ agreements.

Real Estate Law

Our team understands the complex procedures of closing a purchase or sale of commercial and residential properties, including condominiums and co-owned properties.

Real Estate Co-Ownership & Co-Living

Our Real Estate practice specializes in co-ownership of residential and commercial properties, and we understand how to navigate the intricacies of co-buying and co-living.

Whether purchasing a property with family members or with new friends, there are important elements which need to be factored into the structure of the transaction, including reserve fund allocation, spousal rights, maintenance of the property,  and the rules and regulations of the property.

Buying or Selling Your House or Condo

Whether your are buying or selling a condominium or residential property, we can provide you with the knowledge to understand your rights, and protect your investment. It is important that you have one of our lawyers review a status certificate or condominium declaration before any transaction.

Buying or Selling Commercial Real Estate

Commercial real estate deals are inherently complex, involving multiple people with varying tax, family and business arrangements. That’s why we help our clients to structure corporations, partnerships, shareholders’ agreements and trusts to ensure that the transaction runs smoothly.

Entertainment Law

At Aura LLP, we specialize in the fundamentals of music law, and film and media law. We review, negotiate and close deals in music and media, and we represent and counsel clients in the development and management of film and media properties.

Intellectual Property Law

Obtaining a copyright or trademark registration is not an intellectual asset management strategy – it is only the first step. At Aura LLP, we help to protect your intellectual property, ensure you have a right to its continued use, and provide safeguards against third-party infringement.

Other Services

We can provide other legal services on a case-by-case basis. Send us an email, below, or visit our contact page to learn more and schedule a consultation.

  • I am a singer songwriter under the name Chloe Charles and ECHLO and have worked with Andreas in both a legal capacity as well as in a managerial capacity and through this have become good friends. Not only is he meticulous with details, but he is a rare breed of entertainment lawyers who truly cares about the artists he represents. Andreas provides more than his expert legal services; He goes above and beyond to support his artist’s as well as all artists in any capacity that he possibly can. Andreas is an active advocate for artists, and champions not only the issues of his clients but the causes of the arts scene in Toronto overall.

  • I’ve used Aura LLP to close both residential and commercial real estate transactions and mortgage renewals and in every case, they have been a pleasure to work with. Ryan and Andreas have made the process of closing a real estate deal smooth and informative. Their competence and wealth of knowledge in real estate law and commercial law assisted me in making decisions for structuring my business and they have given me insight into avoiding legal pitfalls that could arise while owning commercial and residential property. They also fought on my behalf, and gave really good counsel on a few occasions that have saved us A LOT of money. I will be using them again in the future for all my real estate law needs. I highly recommend these guys

  • Andreas Kalogiannides is one of the most diligent, articulate and thorough professionals that I have had the chance to work with; his natural ability to handle complex, stressful situations in a calm and discerning manner is a breath of fresh air. Andreas has helped me navigate various business matters pertaining to my company, including contract drafting, thoughtful legal counsel, explanation of legal strategy and concepts, organization of administrative affairs and corporate structuring. Andreas is also an advocate and champion for music, which is one of the many similarities we share. It is always refreshing to be able to form professional relationships with positive, passionate people and I am more than happy to recommend Andreas Kalogiannides with regards to assisting individuals and organizations with their legal needs.

    Shez Mehra Owner, 194 Group Inc.
  • I initially contacted Andreas because I needed an intellectual property lawyer to advise me on a publishing contract.  On a Sunday afternoon, I left a message, expecting he’d be in touch the following business day.  But he emailed me within the hour, offering to review the contract.  Even though it was his last week before going on vacation, he made the time to meet with me twice, do an in-depth analysis of the document, suggest improvements, and negotiate with the publisher.  He even arranged for a colleague to continue the negotiation process in his absence.  I was so impressed that a month later I asked him to review a contract I was offered by a literary agent. On both occasions, Andreas made it his priority to protect my legal and financial interests as well as to ensure the contracts reflected the relationship I wanted with a publisher or agent.  To that effect, he carefully explained the implications of the original contracts and the rationale for any changes he proposed. I have no hesitation in recommending Andreas to anyone in the creative community, and I look forward to working with him in the future.

  • I sought out Andreas Kalogiannides’ legal expertise for my music career and contracts, after another artist had recommended him.

I feel safe knowing I’m in good hands with his strong legal expertise, honesty and genuine disposition. I highly recommend him to all.

  • As active real estate investors, my sister and I require a lawyer that has extensive knowledge of real estate law in Canada. We have used Ryan as our lawyer on two of our investment transactions and we will continue to use him as our lawyer in future for all our real estate deals. Ryan not only make the process of closing a real estate deal smooth and efficient, he also takes time to break down all the complicated legal jargon that surrounds a real estate transaction so that we have a good understanding of the legal pitfalls that may arise throughout the course of the transaction. Regardless of whether your a first time home buyer, or an experienced real estate investor, we recommend using Ryan as your lawyer.

  • "Working with lawyers, the likes of, Andreas and Ryan, is nothing shy of perfect. The clients that I have referred, to AURA, echo the same sentiment. I have both confidence in their theoretical knowledge of real estate law and their personal integrity. An absolute pleasure to work with such astute lawyers"

    Lesli Gaynor Realtor
  • As a Financial professional, I have an opportunity to work with a clientele from different professional backgrounds. It is a cognitive journey of learning clients (not only) their financial needs, but their views, hopes, aspirations… The best way to learn about the collective that we live in. The best way to learn about the presents and future about our society. Week ago I had a client that gave me hope that there is bright for all of us. Lawyer that not only loves his profession and proceeds with his full capacity of knowledge, but human with heart and exceptional kindness. It was one of the most memorable appointments where ideas were exchanged and all wrapped up with the outgoing and respectful personality that Ryan Martin radiates.  This helped me to make my right choices in a future when ever I will need legal advise. With no doubt I will choose Ryan Martin and Aura LLP

    Biljana Jordanoska Financial Services Professional
  • My business partner and I hired Andreas to walk us through the merger of our existing businesses and work out a fair partnership agreement. It was an arduous process but Andreas stuck with us and made it easier for us every step of the way. He explained complicated legal concepts to us, sometimes over and over again until we got it. He demonstrated patience, integrity, enthusiasm and professionalism. And he’s genuinely a really nice guy. For these reasons, we would highly recommend him to anyone starting a business, and we’re excited to keep working with him as we grow.

  • “My wife and I worked with Ryan on both selling our existing home and buying a new one.  Ryan was professional and knowledgeable; helping us understand the sometimes overwhelming amount of information that is involved in a real estate transaction.  We would both highly recommend Ryan’s services to anyone looking for great support in their real estate deals.”

I will highly recommend him as an entertainment lawyer as he is very detail oriented and goes above and beyond with everything he takes on. He truly cares about the artists he represents and his advise has been so helpful to advancing Ori's career.

    Leonardo Dell’Anno Producer, Artist Manager
  • My wife and I contacted Andreas Kalogiannides because we needed a lawyer who was well versed in music contracts. Our daughter, a minor, had been asked to sign with a label as a new artist. As it's an ever changing industry that we were not familiar with, we wanted to make sure our daughter had someone who could negotiate the best deal for her new career. Andreas was very clear on what he liked and didn't like about the initial offer and helped us to obtain and negotiate a new offer that satisfied all parties. As we live in a different city, Andreas explained everything via emails and phone conversations so we could be confident about our decisions. We were very pleased that Andreas travelled to meet us and to attend our daughter's first big concert. He will continue to be a valuable member of our team moving forward.

    S.Gadzos & J.Montminy
  • I had the good fortune to seek the advice of Andreas Kalogiannides regarding a publishing issue. He earned my respect from day one, not only with his legal expertise and professional integrity, but his friendliness. Throughout the entire process, he listened with compassion and responded promptly to all my calls; his approachability and kindness gave me the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe in the presence of a friend.
