The Partners of Brownlee LLP are excited to announce that lawyers Aaron Peterkin and Gregory Plester have joined the firm’s Partnership to start 2021.

A thorough and meticulous litigator, Aaron guides clients by identifying litigation risks, providing strategic analysis and advice; and assiduous advocacy.

 He provides coverage advice to insurers of builders’ risk (course of construction), wrap-up liability, commercial general liability, professional errors and omissions, and commercial property policies. Aaron’s practice also includes the defence of coverage actions, priority disputes amongst insurers, construction defect litigation, and complex and catastrophic accident claims.

Outside of the office, Aaron is the publisher and author of the popular Coverage Law blog, ConsideringCoverage.com; teaches Insurance Law at the University of Alberta; and regularly and deliberately jumps out of perfectly good airplanes.

A member of the Municipal Practice Area, Gregory focuses on tax recovery; assessment and taxation; enforcement of municipal bylaws, the Safety Codes Act, and development agreements; privacy and access to information; and utility regulation.

He has also assisted municipalities in respect to various assessment issues, and has successfully defended municipal assessments from related complaints and subsequent court challenges.

Gregory has represented clients before several administrative tribunals including the Municipal Government Board, various Subdivision and Development Appeal Boards and the Alberta Utilities Commission.
