Jim is the co-founder of MT+Co. and a founding member of the Canadian Centre for Environmental Arbitration and Mediation. He is recognized as a leading lawyer in environmental and corporate law. “Co-founding MT+Co. brought my career full circle. I started my practice at an energetic and innovative firm that challenged how established firms practised law. The firm focused on becoming a trusted advisor to clients, acting in their best interests and providing practical advice that advanced client goals while being casual, friendly, and approachable. Since then, the legal business has changed dramatically—in my view, to the detriment of clients. I am proud, once again, to be part of a firm that is challenging the legal status quo and evokes the principles that guided the firm where I began my career.” Notably, Jim performed an External Review of Mine Reclamation and Environmental Protection under the Mines Act and the Waste Management Act, which led to changes to the Environmental Management Act. He has presented papers on environmental issues for The Canadian Institute, the Continuing Legal Education Society of British Columbia, the Conference Board of Canada, and the American Bar Association. Jim is recognized in Best Lawyers and Who’s Who Legal in the area of environmental law.
