B.A., LL. B.

Courtney was called to the British Columbia bar in December 2014, after completing her articling term at Pihl Law Corporation. Prior to articling, she worked as a legal assistant on our corporate and real estate team. It was during this time that she discovered her passion for these areas of law.

Since joining the firm, Courtney has worked with a variety of clients and has gained further knowledge of the legal intricacies to help with their business and real estate transactions.

While Courtney enjoys working on residential real estate matters and commercial financing, she is also enthusiastic about building her practice to focus on business transactions- in particular, those involving healthcare professionals. She has assisted clients with shareholder agreements, cost share agreements, business financing, corporate reorganizations and maintenance of their companies. When it comes to assisting healthcare professionals, she has a wealth of knowledge and experience to guide her clients through the various stages of their practice: from purchasing commercial space for their new practice and setting up associate agreements, to buying or selling existing practices. Courtney’s energetic and professional approach leaves her clients feeling confident that she is the right person to help them navigate the complexities that come with owning a business.

When she is not in the office she can usually be found taking a spin class, skiing at Big White, or exploring local wineries.

With her experience and enthusiasm, Courtney hopes to work with you to help you succeed – whether it’s buying or selling a home, establishing or growing your business, or planning for the future.
