With services covering commercial real estate and strata property, Abigail’s practice encompasses two distinct facets of real estate in British Columbia.
Abigail works with our Commercial Real Estate Law group to assist real estate investors, developers, government entities and private organizations with their real estate legal needs. Meanwhile, in her work with our Strata Property group, Abigail helps strata communities with matters involving management, disputes, and litigation when necessary.
Abigail is thankful for the opportunity to help bring real estate projects to fruition and assist the communities that move into these projects. The dual-sided nature of Abigail’s practice also keeps her finger firmly on the pulse of the overall real estate landscape in BC.
Before her legal career, Abigail obtained a Bachelor of Commerce in Marketing at the University of British Columbia. Abigail draws on her marketing skillset to communicate the often complex language of the legal world to our clients clearly and concisely. Her marketing background also gives Abigail a thorough understanding of how important a client’s brand reputation is to them, and she takes this into account when providing legal advice.
