I am a strategic advisor and partner to entrepreneurs, emerging companies, and investors across a wide range of knowledge-based industries.

My practice focuses on structuring equity and debt financings, mergers and acquisitions, and joint ventures. I also have significant experience negotiating and documenting complex commercial arrangements.

Prior to joining the predecessor of Lindsey MacCarthy, I was an associate in the capital markets group of an internationally-recognized Canadian law firm.
