As partner in the firm’s Business Law and Commercial Real Estate Groups, my law practice focuses on business transactions and legal matters across a broad range of commerce and industries in Alberta.  I advise and conduct commercial and residential real property matters including structuring, development and leasing and the banking and finance matters that often accompany such transactions.

In my practice, I place a high standard on client service and strive for meaningful relationships.  My focus is always on providing the right answers when they are needed to the people who seek my advice and services.  It’s extraordinarily fulfilling to be entrusted as an advisor to clients at any stage of their success.
