Most of my work is for technology companies and venture capital investors. As one of the global co-heads of Dentons’ Venture Technology and Emerging Companies sector group, I am deeply involved in rolling out our startup program around the world. This includes bringing together companies and investors and supporting startups with innovative partnerships with accelerators and incubators. As an office managing partner, one of my projects is recruiting the best lawyers across Canada and the world to help startups grow.
My areas of focus include complex financings, M&A, venture capital fund formation, and special situations including shareholder disputes. I have done extensive work to align Canadian and US practice in the venture capital area and to ensure that our Canadian clients are set up to compete anywhere in the world.
My passions outside of work include vintage cars and aircraft, skiing and writing spy novels.
