About Us

Home | About Us

gbtlaw is a business law firm focused squarely on three areas that we really enjoy doing and doing well:

  • Selling a business over $500,000
  • Buying a business over $1,000,000
  • Resolving co-ownership problems – but avoiding litigation

By narrowing our scope, we’ve been able to achieve efficiencies and acquire deeper expertise to get deals done, even difficult deals.

No deal now is a cookie cutter it seems, but we thrive on solving problems, not creating them or musing on legal issues.

We have the experience and judgement to be pragmatic, pushing transactions ahead with Do Lists, checklists and active quarterbacking/coaching to get you to the end zone – the closing. If you hire us, you will work very closely with a dedicated team, including me as supervising counsel and a sensible delegation of functions.

Selling or buying a business is an emotional and stressful exercise if you haven’t done it before. We’ve done a lot of varied transactions, and we will help you accomplish your goal.

Your deal will be important to us. Please give us a call to discuss your business law needs.

I’m the principal of this law firm, also known as “gbtlaw”. Born in Winnipeg, I studied at Queen’s University at Kingston (economics), University of Edinburgh (economics) and Osgoode Hall, Toronto (law). gbtlaw has grown nicely since inception on January 1, 2000, notwithstanding a couple of recessions in that period.
