Michael has a significant and diverse background in real estate. He practised as an associate real estate broker and owned a property management business for seven years prior to entering the practice of law. His academic background, obtained from the UBC Sauder School of Business, is heavily focused on the study of practical applications of commercial property management and commercial real estate appraisal principles. Michael’s best-selling guide “Landlording in Canada”, based on his real estate experience, is currently available in bookstores nationwide.
Michael received his J.D. from the University of Victoria and was called to the BC Bar in May of 2012.
For the past few years, Michael has focused his practice on providing legal services in civil litigation matters ranging from administrative law and judicial review, to personal injury, regulatory, and commercial litigation. He has also acted as a solicitor with a practice interest in commercial real estate transactions.
In his real estate litigation practice, Michael has assisted clients ranging from the owner of a single rental suite to a major international landlord. He is one of the few lawyers in British Columbia who routinely advises manufactured home park owners about matters involving the Manufactured Home Park Tenancy Act.
Michael’s practical and results-oriented approach, together with his commitment to excellence, complement Harper Grey’s core values and we look forward to Michael’s contribution to our team.
