Law

I practice corporate law for small and medium-sized BC businesses. This means that I help people build and maintain their companies. Corporations are, after all, intended to allow people to do business in modern times. The rest is details. That's where I come in. While my work is ultimately driven by client needs, my services include the following:

  • Business structuring, incorporation, joint ventures and partnerships
  • Asset rollovers and other tax driven transactions
  • Sale and purchases of businesses and business assets
  • Technology, media & brand licensing
  • Protection of new and existing on-line businesses

 

Opinion

Bread & Butter

I've always liked bread & butter. Simple, but good.  Lawyers are often guilty of crimes against simplicity because our livelihood depends on things being complicated. The law is not simple. It is never black and white. My hope is that for most businesses, law can at least be like bread and butter.

Small is Beautiful

Business is all about economies of scale. I agree entirely. Big business works perfectly for many things. Small business works better for many others. Some small businesses will grow, others are perfect just the way they are. Small is efficient. Small is sustainable. Small is beautiful.
