Experience

Jeremy acts for contractors, subcontractors, owners, municipalities and other public bodies, as well as employers and employees.

Jeremy’s practice focuses on Construction Law, assisting clients in a broad range of matters. His construction litigation practice includes navigating complex builders liens, delay claims, bonding issues and other disputes arising from construction projects.

His litigation practice also includes Employment Law, where he acts for both employers and employees in disputes related to human resource matters.

In addition to his litigation work, Jeremy has an active solicitor’s practice. He drafts, reviews and negotiates contracts and documents for commercial, industrial, and municipal clients. His work includes oil and gas projects, public infrastructure projects including recreation centres, pools, arenas and libraries, and commercial and industrial construction projects.

Solution-oriented, Jeremy brings a practical sensibility in guiding clients to a sound result. While he has appeared before all levels of Court in Alberta, Jeremy understands the value of resolving matters without proceeding to a full trial, when possible. In his experience this approach reduces the cost, the timeline, and toll that litigation can take on parties.

Jeremy is a true collaborator and a sought-after mentor in the firm. He believes that teamwork, including assigning tasks to the right lawyers at the right levels, is key in achieving the best result for his clients.
