Finding a lawyer in British Columbia who understands your needs as a creative professional is challenging.

Not everyone gets that branding (ie: your trademarks) matters a lot in your saturated market. Or that “collaboration over competition” is not wishful thinking but actually a big profit-driver (and so win-win contracts are a must). But even so, protecting your original works from copycats is at the Top 2 of your legal wish list.

So you often get quoted for legal services that make sense on paper but don’t actually line up with your priorities.

calling all world shakers:

HEre's how i can help:

With a lawyer that gets you and your business in your team, you can focus on what you do best—bringing more beauty (and joy!) into people’s lives with your products and services.
You can hand over that legal wishlist—even if it’s got a whole bunch of question marks—and get the right legal tools & strategies you need at the right time.

You don’t have to spend 3 years in law school + 1 year articling + pass the bar exam to get your business legally protected.

Copycats suck. I enjoy me some Oscar Wilde, but imitation is rarely (if ever!) the sincerest form of flattery. I help you protect your intellectual property.


You’re writing a lot: website copy, letters to habitually late clients, replies to refund requests, competition guidelines—it’s the gamut! I review (and sometimes write) your words, so everything is legally enforceable—and not accidentally going to put you in hot water.


Whether you’re hiring independent contractors or employees, I help you stay on top of employment laws so you can build out your dream team without the headaches.


You’re building a brand, not just a business. I make sure you can actually own it and help you stand out in the crowded marketplace.


From picking the right entity and setting it up, to making sure your paperwork is up-to-date and your operations are up-to-code, I’m here for all of it.
