I lead the firm’s Business Law Group and provide advice in all areas of corporate and commercial law. I support entrepreneurs, professionals, and organizations, big and small, in their pursuit of good governance, commercial success, and legal compliance. I can help with organizational planning, professional corporations, business acquisitions and sales, commercial leasing, financing, and other general business issues.

Originally from Ottawa, I moved about the country and spent time in both Toronto and Vancouver before returning to the nation’s capital. I obtained a Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) from Ryerson University and studied law at the University of Ottawa, earning my JD (Honours) in 2010 prior to my call to the Ontario bar in 2011.

Prior to joining Mann Lawyers, I worked for several years as a corporate lawyer with a multinational firm and as in-house counsel at one of Canada’s largest crown corporations. Most recently, I helped build a Canadian startup into a leading national player in the immersive entertainment space.

I am a member of the County of Carleton Law Association and sit on the Board of Directors of the Ottawa Network for Education, a local charity that does amazing work for kids and families in the Ottawa area.

When I’m not in the office, I can usually be found playing sports, exploring nature or spending time with my wife Caitlin and our three rascals, Cale, Declan and Reid.

Feel free to contact me if you need help growing your business.
