I have a mixed corporate practice with a focus on public and private transactions, franchising and commercial contracts. I work with a variety of clients, including companies involved in oil and gas exploration, franchise and retail and mining and technology. 

My transactional experience includes advising clients on M&A transactions involving asset and share transactions, joint venture arrangements and compliance with securities legislation and exchange policies. I also have experience advising clients on both private and public equity and debt offerings and financing transactions. 

I have robust experience advising on franchise transactions and have acted for franchisors and franchisees on M&A transactions involving franchisors and matters relating to franchise disclosure documents, franchise agreements, area development agreements and master franchise agreement.

I also have experience drafting, negotiating and advising on general commercial contracts for day to day operations of a business which include, but are not limited to, shareholder agreements, intellectual property licensing agreements, consulting agreements, leases, and procurement contracts.
