Roger is consistently recognized in industry publications as one of the leading Construction litigators in Canada, and has practiced exclusively construction litigation, arbitration and dispute resolution for over twenty-five years. He has acted on some of the largest infrastructure projects in Canada, in the transportation, power, LRT, nuclear, mining, manufacturing and subway sectors. Roger has extensive advocacy experience in trial, appellate and arbitration proceedings, and advises on the avoidance and management of risk in the administration of construction contracts. Roger is ready to go to Court or Arbitration, applying his extensive courtroom experience, but where possible, seeks a less-expensive resolution through mediation or other forms of ADR.
He has represented clients in a wide variety of disputes involving delay, deficiencies, change orders, construction liens and trusts, mortgage priorities, contract interpretation, bidding and tendering, professional negligence and claims under performance and payment bonds. Roger has also developed particular expertise in the area of tendering and procurement in both the public and private sectors.
Roger is a Fellow of the Canadian College of Construction Lawyers, and a Charter Fellow of the Construction Lawyers Society of America, both invitation-only honorary associations of preeminent construction lawyers dedicated to promoting advocacy and ethical standards in construction law.
