Eric has established himself in the Okanagan as a senior civil and commercial litigator since moving here with his family over 15 years ago. He has assisted clients in a broad range of matters, with a focus on commercial litigation, creditor’s remedies (foreclosure, priority disputes and insolvency) and personal injury claims. Eric has successfully appeared in all levels of Court in British Columbia and regularly appears in Supreme Court chambers on foreclosure matters.
