Smaller. Better.

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.
