LEGAL OVERVIEW OF CALGARY LAWYER

As a lawyer focused on corporate transactions and business development, I strongly believe in the importance of understanding how businesses work and realize success (as well as understanding how business fail and the mistakes that they make). Therefore I spend a considerable amount of time studying how companies function and how their leadership makes decisions. Such analysis is extremely important to the formulation of the legal advice that I provide to my corporate clients, as it is essential to the analysis and decision-making process of the business leadership. For legal advice cannot discount business realities, instead it needs to embrace those core precepts and allow the leadership to make appropriate decisions that not only consider the law, but also understands the interplay of the law with business and finance.

Such an appreciation for the interplay of the law and business, together with the recognition of the importance of seriously studying companies for purposes of being a more adept business lawyer, can be traced to my many years as an attorney in New York City, dealing with corporate matters on Wall Street. Those years in Manhattan provided an important legal foundation from which I have continued to develop and sharpen my legal skills, constantly improving my craft in the commercial transactional and legal contracts front. And this has been further assisted by my ongoing integration of technological innovations into the practice of law, such that I feel that I am becoming ever more effective in the advancement of my corporate clients' interests.
