Practice Advisors

The Practice Advisors provide assistance and advice to lawyers  in the area of legal, ethical and practice concerns. They also provide information in relation to strategic planning, practice management, marketing, technology and office systems, with a key focus on the needs of sole practitioners and lawyers practising in smaller settings. They also mediate and arbitrate inter-lawyer disputes, and are available to firms for presentations on ethical matters related to the Alberta Code of Conduct, as well as other ethical issues facing firms in Alberta.”

Practice Advisors will travel anywhere in Alberta for personal meetings with lawyers where appropriate. All contacts are strictly confidential. Services are provided without charge. Members are invited to call at any time.
