Overview: 

For more than 26 years Bill was with our firm, practicing in our Corporate and Commercial Group. Bill was a core member of our firm, contributing a number of years on the firm’s Executive and providing mentorship and guidance to others in the firm.

Bill practiced principally in the areas of corporate and securities law, including corporate finance and regulatory matters and built a strong client base, a testament to his extensive expertise and his ability to understand the client and their perspective, and speak their language.

Bill worked with clients in a very broad range of businesses including energy based industries, manufacturing, mining, technology and professional services.

Bill also worked with clients on matters involving incorporations, reorganizations, share purchase and sale agreements and shareholder agreements.

Bill’s steadfast, friendly demeanour made him a pleasure to work with.
