General Counsel, Skyline Group of Companies
Karyn Sales is the General Counsel to Skyline Group of Companies. She leads the Skyline Legal Team, and is responsible for the legal aspects of all transactions (including acquisitions, dispositions, and financings) for Skyline Apartment REIT, Skyline Commercial REIT, and Skyline Retail REIT. She also provides valuable leasing, corporate, contract, and commercial advice to the various Skyline entities.
Karyn has over ten years of real estate and corporate-commercial law experience. Prior to joining Skyline as Assistant General Counsel in 2012, she worked as an associate in a national law firm for seven years, and spent two years with a boutique commercial real estate, condominium, and land development practice.
Karyn is proud to lead a team that allows Skyline to be virtually self-sufficient in the usage of legal services. Having in-house legal services results in great benefits to the Skyline organization: (1) legal services are provided in a timely manner by a team who has detailed, focused, and front-line knowledge of Skyline and its business; (2) legal costs are contained at a reasonable level, and are predictable; (3) Skyline can leverage the legal knowledge that is continually accruing (i.e. the legal portions of deal experiences are not orphaned inside law firms).
Karyn has both an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree in History and a Bachelor of Laws degree from Queen’s University, and has been called to the Bar in the Province of Ontario since 2003.
