Thomas Clarke




"My experience as a trusted legal advisor has shown that clients appreciate sound practical advice combined with a strong attention to detail."

Tom Clarke is a business lawyer with extensive experience in a broad range of corporate and commercial law. His experience in these areas includes major corporate reorganizations, business acquisitions and divestitures (including mines and mine exploration properties, shopping centers, office and apartment buildings, and contaminated sites), commercial and residential real estate development, commercial real estate leasing, and negotiating settlements of shareholder and contaminated land disputes. He also acted for the developer in one of the most complex subdivision/land assembles in the history of the Lower Mainland Land Title Office (Vancouver, BC) and also has extensive experience in the commercial side of technology transactions, including negotiating licensing arrangements and acting for software developers and distributors.

Tom has also advised clients on estate planning and administration matters since the start of his career over 35 years ago and this area has become a significant component of his practice during the past dozen years – his particular emphasis in this area is integrating business and estate planning, multi-jurisdictional estate planning and complex estate administration.
