I have over 30 years of business law experience utilizing my legal and business degrees advising public and private companies, crown corporations and not-for-profit entities on both external and internal relationships including structuring and implementing transactions, strategic planning and alliances, mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance (debt and equity) and securities, infrastructure and public-private partnerships plus general day-to-day corporate and commercial arrangements involving international and domestic matters. I also advise on corporate governance and social responsibility matters, including as to succession, to boards of directors, advisory/special committees and senior management teams.
Engagements involving Aboriginal peoples and/or companies doing business with Aboriginal communities have included partnership and joint venture projects and related agreements plus internal Band policies, community consultations, protocols and litigation settlement agreements.
I am a member of the Board of Directors of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation, a relationship that commenced in 2006, and have served on most of its Board Committees.
I am a member of the Law Society of Upper Canada and was called to the Bar of Ontario in 1983 after having obtained degrees from the University of Ottawa (L.L.B., 1981), University of Toronto (M.B.A.. 1978) and Carleton University (B. Comm., 1976).
