Daniel Babin


Daniel is an attorney in KRB’s Banking and Finance group. Over the years, he has represented banks and financial institutions in the financing of companies involved in the development of advanced technologies and in the manufacturing and services industries. In addition to secured lending, he has regularly been involved in major mergers and acquisitions, corporate reorganizations and real estate development.

Daniel has not only represented large financial institutions, private lenders and governmental agencies, but has also carried out mandates on behalf of borrowers, particularly medium-sized companies, allowing him to fully understand the concerns of the parties involved and to offer adapted and balanced legal solutions, particularly in the context of syndicated loans.

Prior to joining KRB, Daniel practiced banking and commercial law for a several years at a leading Quebec-based law firm with offices in several cities throughout the province. He holds an undergraduate degree from McGill University and was called to the Quebec Bar in 1997.
