About James

I advise startups and small business owners on matters such as starting or buying a business, leasing, employment issues, shareholder agreements, commercial lending, reorganizations and selling a business.

Estate planning is also a major part of my practice. I prepare wills, trusts, powers of attorney and representation agreements. I also handle probate applications and estate administration. Recently I completed the diploma program for the Trust and Estate Practitioner (TEP) designation.

Last year I served as Chair of the New Westminster Chamber of Commerce. I have also served as a director of the Burnaby Neighbourhood House and the Calgary Cinematheque Society.

My spare time is spent keeping up with my three boys. Interests include playing soccer and road cycling.
