All businesses need other business at times, for support, marketing, and as clients. Downtown Hamilton has a variety of professional service organizations focused on your business success whether you have been doing business for years, are a young start-up, or even exploring a move or branch office in the region.
There are lawyers, accountants, architects, insurance brokers, financial institutions, internet service companies, and designers committed to servicing your business needs, but what sets them apart is the depth and quality of relationships they share as professionals.
“The Economic Development Division strives to work closely and collaboratively with the many businesses downtown, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Business Improvement Areas. Our staff has a regular calling program, meeting owners at their place of business, that helps to keep us informed and responsive to the issues/challenges/opportunities of the day,” says Glen Norton, Manager, Urban Renewal.
Dan Lawrie Insurance Brokers Ltd., established in 1982, is a locally owned, 90 employees, full-service insurance and financial services firm that’s ranked in the top five percent of brokerages in Canada.
“We’ve made a long-term commitment to Downtown Hamilton. We want to be a part of, and support, the ongoing renaissance of Hamilton and the downtown core. There are terrific business synergies here and our staff enjoy the central location with good bus routes, lots of parking, restaurants, shops, services and a “downtown vibe” that keeps getting better” says Dan Lawrie, CEO of Dan Lawrie Insurance Brokers.
Taylor Leibow LLP is a full-service accounting and advisory firm that has been located in the downtown core since the 1940s. As an owner, investor, developer, construction company or property manager, Taylor Leibow can advise you on structuring your organization, financing your business, and safeguarding your assets while providing proactive guidance in navigating Canada’s tax terrain.
“Taylor Leibow has been able to successfully grow from its downtown location to become one of the largest independent public accounting firms in the region. This is one of the reasons why the firm has remained downtown and committed to supporting the Hamilton downtown business community. Downtown is also a central place for our clients, contacts, and referral sources such as bankers, lawyers, and other business professionals who we have close relationships with,” says Nigel Jacobs, Taylor Leibow’s Chief Executive Officer. “The downtown is large enough to provide all these services but small enough to build long standing relationships.”
NetAccess has been a leader in Internet and Communication services since 1993, providing comprehensive data and voice solutions to Hamilton and area businesses, and offering an integrated suite of services through its team of IT professionals and network of strategic partners. “There’s a sense of being connected to the business community with informal ways to meet and collaborate. What has really been encouraging is that there’s been a grassroots development with the arts that has drawn other creative businesses into the area because of our lower cost and sense of community,” says Don McNally, President, NetAccess.
“Hamilton is my home and the people we work with know each other well and amongst the professional communities there are personal relationships and being downtown has helped,” he adds.
