I am delighted to continue my practice as Counsel at Gardiner Roberts LLP. GR has exceeded my expectations in providing an exceptional team and firm culture to support the needs of my clients. GR is a full service firm with the range of services required to support my broad based corporate commercial practice.

My strength is the ability to lead a service team dedicated to helping clients plan, orchestrate and successfully implement complex transactions within time-sensitive regulated environments. I led the team that completed one of the first mergers acquisitions of two mutual fund dealers regulated by the MFDA. I led the corporate/commercial and specialty team (of 25 lawyers) advising on the design, build, finance and operation of the first public private hospital facility in Ontario. I was appointed as External Counsel to the Ontario Power Authority (as it then was) with a mandate to provide corporate/ commercial legal services, often on an expedited basis, to support the development of conservation and demand management programs. I led the Canadian legal team for one of the consortium of bidders on the development of the Gordie Howe International Bridge. I recently led a corporate/commercial and specialty team (of 20 lawyers and paralegals) acting for a group of international shareholders in the sale of a Canadian specialty manufacturing company to a United States buyer.

I am actively involved in advising foreign companies with their direct investment in and establishing and operating their businesses in Canada. I have advised direct investors from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Chile, China, Columbia, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Pakistan, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates and United States of America.

My clients are engaged in a wide range of industry sectors, including biotech, brokerage, clean tech, construction and infrastructure, data management, digital media, e-commerce, emerging technologies, energy and renewable energy, film production, financial services, food and beverage, health care, hotel management, investment and private equity funds, logistics, manufacturing, marketing and advertising, mining, outsourced product engineering services, pharmaceuticals, product manufacturing, supply and distribution; real estate development, robotics, and specialty publishing.
