Partner
Part­ner, Com­mer­cial, Cor­po­rate, Estate Plan­ning, Fran­chis­ing

I pro­vide advice on a broad range of busi­ness trans­ac­tions, includ­ing merg­ers, busi­ness sales and acqui­si­tions, joint ven­tures and part­ner­ships. My clients ben­e­fit from my skills as a nego­tia­tor and exper­tise in cre­at­ing struc­tures for tax effec­tive­ness and asset pro­tec­tion.

As part of our Estate Plan­ning and Wealth Man­age­ment prac­tice, my expe­ri­ence includes asset pro­tec­tion, trusts, suc­ces­sion plan­ning, analysing estab­lished struc­tures, con­test­ed estates — includ­ing fam­i­ly pro­vi­sion mat­ters, fam­i­ly asset arrange­ments, and prepa­ra­tion of Wills, Pow­ers of Attor­ney and Endur­ing Guardian documents.

Expe­ri­ence

I have advised clients in a vari­ety of indus­tries, includ­ing phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal, food man­u­fac­tur­ing, whole­sale, trans­port, retail, con­struc­tion mate­ri­als, prop­er­ty and cosmetics.

I have exten­sive expe­ri­ence help­ing peo­ple pro­tect their assets. I firm­ly believe that lit­i­ga­tion is the last resort, not the first option. I under­stand the inter­re­la­tion between estate lit­i­ga­tion and oth­er areas of law includ­ing fam­i­ly law, prop­er­ty law, busi­ness law, com­mer­cial law and insolvency.
