Francesco Deo


Approachable, hard-working, and dedicated to providing solutions to all types of condominium-related issues, Francesco strives to deliver the highest level of service to condominium clients.

Prior to becoming an associate at Fine & Deo, Francesco earned a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) from York University, and a Juris Doctor from the University of Ottawa. While pursuing his law degree at the University of Ottawa, Francesco completed internships in the areas of insurance defence, litigation, and condominium law. Francesco graduated from law school in May of 2017 and was called to the Bar in June of 2018.

Condominium law is in Francesco’s DNA. From a young age, Francesco ​was always passionate about the practice of condominium law. Francesco acknowledges that managing, operating, and/or living in a condominium can present a multitude of unanticipated problems. Francesco aims to solve these complex problems in a timely and effective manner, and strives to ensure that condominium managers, employees, directors, officers, and residents are able to work and live harmoniously with one another.

As an associate at Fine & Deo, Francesco Deo is focused on all areas of condominium law, litigation, and governance. Francesco has conducted and assisted in various condominium-based litigation matters before the Landlord and Tenant Board, the Small Claims Court, and the Superior Court of Justice. He has also acted as chairperson for condominium meetings and frequently advises condominium boards on a variety of issues, including condominium by-laws and rules, proxies, meeting procedures, shared facilities, human rights, vendor contracts, and more. Francesco plays an important role at Fine & Deo in keeping condominium boards, managers, and owners up-to-date with the ongoing implementation of the recent amendments to the Condominium Act, 1998.

Francesco’s long-term vision is to give back to the condominium industry, and to help evolve and shape the industry in a positive manner. Francesco’s work has been published in the CondoVoice Magazine. He is also a member of the Canadian Condominium Institute (CCI) and the Association of Condominium Managers of Ontario (ACMO).
