"Having the right people makes a difference"
Profile: 

Andrew has a business law practice, with a focus on electronic commerce issues. He provides guidance about online delivery of goods and services, privacy, data protection, access to information, anti-spam law compliance and intellectual property control and capitalization. 

He advises clients on a variety of issues, creates policies and advocates on behalf of his clients, to help them respond to their legal challenges and opportunities. Andrew's practice also includes a significant research and analysis component and the provision of timely strategic advice, including guidance for responding to privacy breaches and access to information requests.

Andrew's clients include private sector businesses of all sizes and public bodies. He also assists clients who are not located in Manitoba or Canada - but who wish to carry on business here - with advice to "Canadaize" their management of Canadian resident personal information.

He is a frequent speaker and media commentator on privacy and data protection matters.

Andrew received his law degree from the University of Manitoba in 2009, and was awarded the University Gold Medal for the highest standing in the Bachelor of Laws program. He was called to the Bar in 2010.
