Practice Overview

My primary areas of practice at the current time are the following:

  1. corporate and commercial matters, which can involve matters such as incorporating new businesses, drafting contracts and shareholder agreements, purchase and sale transactions (both shares or assets), employee issues, debt collection, and general business issues;
  2. real estate, which includes both residential and commercial sales and purchases, mortgages, leases and other matters related to real estate transactions;
  3. personal care documents, by which I mean items such as wills, enduring powers of attorney and personal directives;
  4. estates, including applications for grants of probate or administration;
  5. property transactions for conservation organizations, including purchase of wildlife habitat properties, and placement of conservation easements and project agreements between organizations.

Comprehensive report letters and document packages are provided at the conclusion of matters, so that you will have a lasting record of your transaction, and a clear understanding of the work that was done on your behalf.  It is my practice to provide copies to my clients of all letters sent and received as a matter proceeds, as well as copies of any documents produced or received in the course of the work.

The fees for my services will be billed on either a set amount basis as quoted prior to commencing the work (such as in matters involving real estate transactions or for wills and the like), or on an hourly rate basis for matters where the work will be of an ongoing nature, plus on all matters GST and any expenses incurred (commonly referred to as disbursements).

We look forward to the opportunity to be of service to you.
