Jeremy acts for contractors, subcontractors, owners, municipalities and other public bodies, as well as employers and employees.
Jeremy’s practice focuses on Construction Law, assisting clients in a broad range of matters. His construction litigation practice includes navigating complex builders’ liens, delay claims, bonding issues and other disputes arising from construction projects. Jeremy has taught construction law at the University of Alberta Faculty of Law since 2015 and presents at seminars and courses for various educational and construction industry groups. He is also a Fellow of the Canadian College of Construction Lawyers.
His litigation practice also includes Employment Law, where he acts for both employers and employees in disputes related to human resource matters.
In addition to his litigation work, Jeremy has an active solicitor’s practice. He drafts, reviews and negotiates contracts and documents for commercial, industrial, and municipal clients. His work includes oil and gas projects, public infrastructure projects including recreation centres, pools, arenas and libraries, and commercial and industrial construction projects.
Solution-oriented, Jeremy brings a practical sensibility in guiding clients to a sound result. While he has appeared before all levels of Court in Alberta, Jeremy understands the value of resolving matters without proceeding to a full trial, when possible. In his experience this approach reduces the cost, the timeline, and the toll that litigation can take on parties.
Jeremy is a true collaborator and a sought-after mentor in the firm. He believes that teamwork, including assigning tasks to the right lawyers at the right levels, is key in achieving the best result for his clients.
In his down time Jeremy enjoys spending time with his family. You can find him on the golf course, playing hockey, or enjoying the outdoors while camping, backpacking, hunting and fishing.
