Announced earlier this month, Brownlee LLP Partners Jeneane Grundberg and Guy Miki will be designated with the honourary title of Queen’s Counsel in a ceremony to be held later this year.

Lawyers are bestowed with the Queen’s Counsel title in honour of their service to the legal community and their support of local community organizations.

A Partner in the firm’s Municipal Practice Area, Jeneane has more than 120 reported decisions on multiple aspects of municipal, planning, and administrative law at all levels of the Alberta Courts. She also leads legal teams on complex litigation as well as policy and bylaw development.

Her work has been recognized as having important precedential value, helping inform future court decisions and municipal actions. In addition, she is often a consultant to the provincial government on planning and development matters.

Guy is a Partner in our Business Practice Area who has dedicated his career to providing timely, forward-looking legal advice to small and mid-sized businesses, international corporations, professional corporations, utilities, municipal governments, and various other forms of profit and non-profit organizations.

His practice areas include succession planning, mergers and acquisitions, corporate practice, corporate governance and operational support. As a trusted advisor, he is often his clients’ first contact point to help determine the most appropriate course of action on their business issues.

Selections for the Court of Queen’s Counsel title are reviewed by a screening committee including representatives from the Alberta judiciary, Alberta Justice and Solicitor General, and the legal community.

Although the screening committee provides recommendations, awarding the Queen’s Counsel title is the sole discretion of the Lieutenant Governor in Council.
