Scott Johnston has provided me with legal services and advice over several years, on several occasions and on a variety of matters. He’s a professional with proven expertise, always thorough, always timely and a pleasure to work with. Scott helped us with one of the most complex and successful real estate developments in Whistler. Scott’s advice from shareholder issues to rezoning and sales were invaluable. I’ll continue to seek Scott’s legal counsel and I highly recommend him to others.
Scott was extremely helpful in guiding our company through a complex process of repurchasing shares from ten outside shareholders, and in subsequently developing a shareholder agreement for five partners within a streamlined corporate structure. I particularly appreciated Scott’s rare ability to keep legal documents both clear and concise, and to explain necessary legalese in non-technical language.
