Experience

Guy started his professional career working for major insurance companies, brokers, and government agencies, both as an in-house adjuster and independent adjuster, investigating, adjusting, and settling a variety of claims including catastrophic injury, CGL, Occupiers’ liability, condominium, large property losses, and negotiating structured settlements.  This experience helped him gain an in-depth understanding of what matters to clients, namely finding practical solutions to complex problems, which he achieves by thoroughly reviewing the file and crafting the negotiation strategy early on.  Guy takes proactive steps and, having pursued training on Alternative Dispute Resolution, he focuses on interests rather than positions.

Guy completed his articles with Parlee in 2020 and joined the firm in 2021, as an Associate lawyer.  He has gained trial experience in the Provincial Court of Alberta, and in the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta.  Guy has actively participated in mediations and Judicial Dispute Resolutions (JDRs).
