For the past thirty-seven years, Peter has been active as a lawyer, businessman and mediator in BC and Ontario. He has worked closely with his business clients in a wide variety of tasks from business formation through financings, mergers and acquisitions, contract negotiations, international trade, dealings with government, tax planning and securities compliance. Peter's clients range from smaller independent businesses to publicly listed companies. He has been involved in numerous prospectus exempt offerings and other financings.
Peter's experience as an entrepreneur has led to an approach that is practical: finding legal solutions that make business sense. This practical, entrepreneurial approach, combined with a relational style, is brought to business negotiations. Peter also has extensive experience facilitating leadership development, strategic planning, conflict management and community building workshops for business, government and not-for-profit organizations on six different continents.
He currently serves as a director on or corporate secretary to the boards of several BC companies as well as a number of charities. He is also actively involved with Global Mothers, a new social enterprise targeting poverty alleviation in the Developing World through trade. Skiing, cycling, movies and reading round out Peter's primary interests.
