I am a partner/lawyer at Fox Law, a firm that services clients from Peterborough and the surrounding area in matters of business law, real estate, estate planning and administration.
Before joining Fox Law, I articled at a Bay Street law firm in Toronto where I worked with a team of lawyers on litigation, corporate and real estate matters. During my articles, I completed a secondment in the legal department at Wal-Mart Canada’s head office.
During law school, I participated in the Queen’s Elder Law Clinic, the Queen’s Correctional Law Project, the Moot Court Program and ProBono Students Canada. I also served on the Queen’s Law School Admissions Committee.
Prior to entering law school, I worked for eight (8) years in both the private and public sectors.
Since joining Fox Law, much of my work has focused on assisting the firm’s small business clients with a variety of business and corporate law matters:
•Business succession planning
•Share and asset purchases/sales
•Creation of family trusts
I have also worked with many of the firm’s clients on real estate matters, the creation of wills and powers of attorney, as well as the administration of estates.
Before becoming a lawyer, I worked for two years for the local Economic Development Corporation with a focus on small business owners. A portion of these small business owners were farm families. During my time with local Economic Development, I provided professional business consulting services on such topics as business planning, regulations, marketing and financing to aspiring and existing small business owners. I also led the rollout of a community outreach program to provide an increased level of support and guidance to small businesses in rural Peterborough County.
I returned to Peterborough to practice law five years ago. Today, almost 75% of my practice consists of working with small business owners (including farm families) on various legal matters relating to their small businesses, including: incorporations, shareholder and partnership agreements, the sale and purchase of businesses (assets and shares), as well as a variety of other corporate matters such as contract and lease review, employment contracts and the purchase, sale and refinancing of commercial properties. The remaining 25% of my practice is focused on Will & Estate Planning and Residential Real Estate transactions (many of which are completed on behalf of my small business clients).
