Value to Clients

“I believe in providing clients with legal advice they would expect from our firm along with business-oriented solutions.  Locating the law is usually only the first step, as it needs to be translated into practical advice that can be integrated into the day-to-day activities of the client’s business environment.” 

Outside the Office

“I love living in a dynamic, growing city like Edmonton – there’s always something to do,” says the urban explorer. Whether he’s engaging with the city’s growing arts and culture scene, painting in acrylic or pastels, or playing tennis, Marc is always looking for ways to make the most of his time outside of work.
