Experience

Greg started his RMRF journey in the summer of 2012 and continues a general practice with an emphasis on expropriation, civil litigation, construction law, and administrative law. Prior to that, Greg served as a Case Comments Co-Editor for the Alberta Law Review, worked in the legal department of the Workers’ Compensation Board and articled at the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta.

Greg has acted for a broad scope of clients, including authorities and claimants in expropriation files and he has significant experience with negotiating resolutions and guiding client expectations. He has appeared before the Land Compensation Board on expropriation matters and serves on the executive of the Alberta Expropriation Association as VP North.

Greg has been successful at all levels of court in Alberta, including Gaw v Yellowhead County, 2018 ABQB 271 which was selected for inclusion in the Thompson Reuters Construction Law Reports in recognition of its importance to construction law. Greg has also successfully argued novel expropriation issues before the Court of Queen’s Bench and the Court of Appeal of Alberta and his published research has been cited by the Supreme Court of Canada in the decision of Atlantic Lottery Corp Inc. v Babstock, 2020 SCC 19.
