G.M (Gary) Lawson, Q.C.
Gary was admitted to the New Brunswick Bar in 1979 and thereafter joined his father’s law practice, which became known as Lawson and Lawson. He has been with Lawson Creamer ever since, helping to oversee the firm’s evolution for more than thirty years.
Gary’s corporate/commercial practice encompasses the entire spectrum of business law. He works with businesses in all phases of development – from start-ups to very large-scale enterprises – providing advice on such matters as share ownership and structures, incorporations, tax-driven corporate reorganizations, mergers and acquisitions including asset and share purchases, as well as drafting and advising on various forms of business contracts and agreements.
As a natural extension of working with businesses, Gary also works with clients on a broad range of labour and employment matters, including non-unionized employee issues related to employment contracts, terminations, human rights and employee policy manuals, as well as union certifications, negotiating collective agreement issues and assisting with collective agreements. To further assist his business clients, Gary works with business owners on estate planning to ensure a smooth transition of assets to the next generation.
