John’s litigation practice focuses on property disputes, including real estate, environmental and commercial litigation, condominium law, expropriation law, energy regulation, and regulatory offences. John has a particular interest in agricultural land matters – outside the office, he lives and works on his family’s cash crop farm northwest of London, Ontario with his wife and three kids.
Since his call to the Bar in July, 2005, John has acted as counsel in matters before all levels of Ontario courts, the Federal Court of Appeal, the Ontario Energy Board, the National Energy Board (now the Canadian Energy Regulator Commission), the Ontario Environmental Review Tribunal, and various other regulatory tribunals. John is a Policy Advisor with the Canadian Association of Energy and Pipeline Landowner Associations (CAEPLA), and assists landowners across Canada in dealing with energy projects on their lands.
John is the author of Agrilaw, a monthly publication in The Rural Voice, and of the Law of the Lands – Farm, Energy and Enviro Law blog, which provides legal information to farmers and landowners.
