Outside of Work
Scott is a seasoned world traveler with a weakness for New York City. He also makes it a point to drop in on court proceedings whenever he travels throughout Canada or abroad. It's cheaper than the movies. But popcorn is generally discouraged.
Scott has handled several commercial contract disagreements involving abandoned goods after an eviction or post-lease. This is a common problem for landlords, banks and other, related parties to an agreement. So, we've created a template that offers a set of practical options that often avoid the need for legal action altogether.
He has significant experience handling matters throughout the courts of Alberta, including contested special chambers applications, judicial dispute resolution hearings, pre-trial conferences, mediations and trials, cases at the Provincial Court of Alberta both Civil and Criminal, the Court of Queen's Bench of Alberta and briefing matters at both the Court of Appeal of Alberta and the Supreme Court of Canada.
