Deep condo law experience

Personal and career highlights

Gareth has called small-town Ontario (the Ottawa Valley and, the near north) and Toronto “home”. He’s also lived in Nova Scotia and on New Zealand’s South Island.

He earned a Bachelor of Commerce from Dalhousie University and then attended law school at Queen’s University. After articling with a Bay Street firm in Toronto, Gareth was called to the bar in 2012.

Since then, he’s gained a variety of experience, from practicing corporate, real estate, and wills/estate law in Collingwood to running his own firm in Toronto until he joined a condo law boutique and got caught up in the world of condo law. From there he returned to Bay Street prior to joining Common Ground Condo Law.

Condo law is a great fit for Gareth, it allows him to leverage his condo knowledge with his corporate, commercial, and real estate experience. He sees each condo law file as a legal adventure.
