VANCOUVER BUSINESS LAWYER.
I am a Vancouver-based business lawyer and law practice management consultant. I help business owners navigate the regulatory web of modern enterprise with legal services spanning corporate law and information security law. I also work with other lawyers and law firms to help them evolve their legal practices through legal marketing and IT modernization.
Small Law is not a law firm. It is the idea that professional services can be improved by reducing wasteful overhead and leveraging technology to improve client service. Trusted business counsel, without the fancy pants.
How can I help?
There’s plenty to do.
Business Law Consultations
I offer fixed-fee legal consultations. Starting a business? Need independent legal advice? Want your draft agreements reviewed? I can help. These consultations generally take 1 to 2 hours and can be booked in-person, by phone, or by video conference.
I work primarily with service-based enterprises such as engineers, software developers, consultants, marketing agencies, and health professionals. My work focuses on negotiating and drafting services agreements, website policies, and license agreements.
Information security law
I work with organizations on privacy law matters, including regulatory compliance and data breach response. These services can be either proactive or reactive. My advice follows PIPEDA, PIPA, GDPR, and anti-spam regulations (CASL) requirements.
Corporate Records Management
BC & Federal Incorporation
I make companies. This starts with advising you on the structure of your business before moving forward with the incorporation filing and the creation of a virtual record book.
BC Cost: Starting at $800
Fed Cost: Starting at $900
Did you self-incorporate with minimal documentation or neglect the paperwork for a few years? I can help. I work with business owners to fill gaps in their corporate records.

Registered Records Office
Every company is required to maintain a registered office and a records office. I serve this function for many clients while maintaining a virtual record book for remote access.
Law Firm Consulting
Legal platform Integration
I help law firms integrate applications, customize applications to match their workflows, and code documents for document automation. I also work on staff training and data migrations between platforms.
Law Firm IT Audits
I work with lawyers and law firms in identifying a path forward for their IT infrastructure and legal workflows. Audits generally run 3 hours with an emphasis on migrations, systems integration, costs, and training/support.
I have over 8 years of legal marketing experience with law firms ranging in size from sole-practitioners to large national firms. The focus of my ongoing legal marketing work is in managing Google Ad campaigns for law firms.
