As a business lawyer, with over 30 years’ experience, my practice is focused in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, debt and venture financings and corporate reorganizations. Beyond my transactional practice, I have counselled clients on corporate governance matters, succession planning, shareholder dispute resolution and contractual matters.
My Clients include privately held, owner-managed businesses, emerging growth technology companies and foreign corporations doing business in Canada. A significant component of my practice deals with cross-border business issues for foreign based companies seeking to invest and carry on business in Canada through the establishment of branch or subsidiary operations.
I am a graduate of McGill University and hold both civil and common law degrees. My journey in private practice has taken me from Toronto where I practiced law for six years before making my way to Ottawa where I have worked for several prominent Ottawa based firms. I have enjoyed a long history of involvement in the Ottawa business community from leadership and board positions with not-for-profit organizations , fundraising initiatives for hospitals, universities and arts organizations to delivery and presentations of seminars and workshops to the business and legal communities.
Outside of work, my wife and I enjoy spending time with our children and their families as well as hiking, biking and fly fishing in the Adirondacks.
