The innovative solutions that Paul has developed for Stewart McKelvey and its clients, both in delivering traditional legal service, and in leading our Practice Innovation initiatives, are redefining how the firm delivers service to clients. As full-time Practice Innovation Partner, with his unique background in law, business and IT, Paul applies a powerful set of rare skills to solve highly complex legal problems.


In 2013, Paul was on the legal team that represented Sobeys in its $5.8 billion purchase of Safeway Canada, being Canada’s largest deals that year. In 2015, Paul left his thriving Corporate Law practice to spearhead some of the firm’s most complex and multi-faceted strategic priorities including the Firm’s Practice Re-engineering, Legal Project Management (LPM), Pricing, and Profitability & Compensation Alignment initiatives.


His coaching and support have led to the identification of like-minded lawyers, staff and clients, who are increasingly engaging in practice innovation initiatives with Paul’s mentorship.


Paul is on the Nova Scotia Barristers Society Law Office Management Committee.
