Bryan is a commercial lawyer with more than 30 years of experience in business structuring and unique transactions. He has expertise in less traditional business structures such as limited partnerships.

He is a specialist in the tourism sector, and the fishing industry. Bryan is also a specialist in development property structures, especially in private and gated communities. This includes the residents associations, bylaws, and private infrastructure associated with them. It also includes golf courses which are part of the development.

Bryan enjoys using his accounting background to create innovative legal solutions to business ideas. He always tries to make the commercial imperatives drive the transaction. The answer is “we can do this, now let’s work out how”.
