After graduating from law school and articling at a large Winnipeg law firm, the majority of John’s professional experience has been spent practicing law. However, he took a two year sabbatical from the practice of law and worked as an executive in the financial sector.
In that role, he sourced capital (debt and equity) for acquisitions, developments and corporate growth, through financial brokerages and investment banks. He worked with business owners in technology, real estate, manufacturing, entertainment, construction, hospitality, transportation, and health and fitness, in order to provide them with access to capital. Moreover, during his time away from law, John sat on the Board of Directors of a small company that owned a restaurant.
His involvement in business and financial structuring gives him a unique skill set, combined with his legal background, to advise clients that are navigating the legal landscape and the realities of business.
