To thrive in today’s business world, companies must be willing to take risks in order to respond to changing requirements and circumstances. Appreciating the timeless dedication it takes to build a business, Cohen works with First Nations communities, post-secondary institutions and companies of all sizes, to ensure potential risks and undertakings are carefully measured and tactfully executed.

Growing up in a small business family, Cohen witnessed firsthand the hard work that entrepreneurs like his parents put in daily to maintain and grow their business. This early exposure and work in his family’s business engrained in Cohen an appreciation for resilience and trusted guidance in the face of potential obstacles and changes. Cohen went on to work in BC’s forestry industry for over five years. As a result, he has in-depth knowledge of the forestry and environmental contexts, as well as risks and liabilities associated with the natural resource sectors.
