Since being called to the British Columbian bar in 1985, Art has practiced in civil litigation in a wide variety of cases, ranging from aboriginal and constitutional law, administrative law, intellectual property, class actions, construction litigation, professional liability, commercial disputes, insurance law and personal injury law. He has appeared in every level of court in the Province, from the Provincial Court of British Columbia to the Supreme Court of Canada and has been counsel in cases in administrative tribunals, commercial arbitrations and mediations. Since 1992, he has also been a member of the Yukon bar. He enjoys seeking practical solutions to difficult legal problems and learning about his clients’ businesses, professions and lives.

Formerly a law clerk to judges of both the Supreme Court of Canada and the Supreme Court of British Columbia and a sessional law professor at University of Ottawa, he co-authored the 2nd edition of the Canadian Law of Architecture and Engineering(1994) with Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin of the Supreme Court of Canada and W.J. Wallace Q.C., former Justice of the British Columbia Court of Appeal.

Outside of the law, Art frequently hikes the mountains near his home, often cycles to work, is an avid swimmer and a competitive rower with the Masters crew of the Deep Cove Rowing Club. He enjoys travel, good books of all types and excellent food.
