My name is Clayton and I am a lawyer in British Columbia, Canada. My law practice focuses on election law, lobbying law and conflict of interest and ethics law.
My clients have included election authorities, political parties, third parties, lobbyists and former public office holders. I also practice in the areas of business law, non-profits and wills and estates.
If you have a legal issue or question I would be pleased to hear from you. I can be reached through the Contact page.
The Democracy Law Blog
I created the Democracy Law Blog out of an academic and professional interest in the laws that serve as the foundation for governance in democratic societies.
The purpose of the blog is to provide informative analysis and access to resources, as well as expanding knowledge and stimulating debate.
My hope is that this blog becomes an accessible resource for people who want to understand or have questions about the democratic system in Canada.
The Democracy Law Blog is non-partisan. While the blog is intended mainly to provide news and analysis, I may also provide some opinions every now and then. In some cases these opinions may support or oppose issues that are associated with a particular political party, candidate or proponent. Such support or opposition should only be construed as an opinion on the substantive issues involved, not an expression of support or opposition to the parties or persons associated with them.
