John was called to the Ontario bar in 1971 after graduating from Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto. He was appointed a Queen’s Counsel in 1984.
John joined Tierney Stauffer LLP as a senior legal advisor in our Corporate and Commercial Group and works in both our Ottawa office and our Arnprior office.
John has acquired significant experience in business law during his 45 years of practice. Until he relocated to the Ottawa Valley in the Fall of 2010, John practiced in Toronto with several firms, including two national firms. During his career, John has dealt with a wide range of corporate and commercial law issues for privately owned businesses, as well as for publicly-traded corporations and not-for-profit organizations. His experience includes working with entrepreneurs and innovators. From simple to complex incorporations and other business structures, shareholders’ agreements, partnership agreements, the purchase, sale or reorganization of businesses, strategic planning, transaction management and the many other matters usually encountered in a business law practice, John has both the knowledge and the experience to satisfy his clients’ objectives.
John also offers advice and guidance on commercial and residential real estate transactions, commercial leasing, private and institutional financing matters and wills and estates.
John and his wife have happily settled in Renfrew. They are proud parents of their three adult children and very much enjoy their three grandchildren. John likes to run on the many trails near town as an effective way to stay fit and to release some of the pressures of the day. He is actively involved in his community, including as a member of the local Rotary, and has happily discovered the many benefits which the Upper Ottawa Valley and Ottawa have to offer.
