Biography

A partner since January 2014, my litigation work focusses on complex, technical civil matters. My team and I have trial and appellate experience in:

  • insurance coverage disputes
  • solicitor, hospital, dental, and other forms of professional negligence
  • personal injury
  • product liability
  • commercial litigation
  • constitutional litigation
  • malicious prosecution
  • administrative law proceedings

I articled at Guild Yule LLP and was called to the BC Bar in 2006. After joining the partnership in 2014, I was also appointed as one of two Recruitment and Development Partners.

I served as President of the Vancouver Bar Association for the 2012-13 term. My other professional activities include board-level contributions for the VBA, Medical Legal Society,and Peter S. Hyndman Mentorship Award Committee, speaking engagements, and guest lecturing.

My wife, two young children, and I live in a designated heritage home in one of Vancouver’s “affordable” suburbs, where we enjoy entertaining family and friends, gardening, and walking the seawall and local trails.
