Professor of Legal English and Legal Writing
I am a lawyer licensed to practice law in Canada, with nearly 10 years of experience in preparation, review and finalization of all types of legal and financial documentation. From 2003 until 2009 I worked in the above mentioned capacity at one of Canada’s oldest and well established law offices, Green and Spiegel, L.L.P. For the following 6 years I owned and managed my own full-service law practice.
I am currently living in Madrid where, for the past 5 years, I have been teaching Legal, Finance and Fiscal English (Ingles Juridico/Financiero/Fiscal) and preparing/reviewing legal translations. My clients include or included a number of private educational institutions such as IE, CUNEF, C.U. Villanueva, the offices of important law firms such as Ontier Espana, Cuatrecasas, Kennedys, Mavens, Dentons and legal departments of large companies such as Bankinter and El Corte Ingles.
My courses are both face-to-face and online, often tailor-made as per the specifications and needs of each law firm or educational institution where I teach, focusing on commercial law (the language of contracts, business formation, corporations, mergers & acquisitions, real estate, etc.), litigation, criminal, tort and practical skills areas such as the language of emailing, negotiating, etc.
I also develop all-original course materials, including video-based exercises dealing with key legal terminology, collocations and prepositions related to latest legal news from around the world that usually make up not only for interesting content but also spark debate in class.
