…..Fragile as reason is and limited as law is as the institutionalized medium of reason, that’s all we have between us and the tyranny of mere will and the cruelty of unbridled, undisciplined feelings.

Felix Frankfurter,
Scholar, Educator, U.S. Supreme Court Justice (1882-1965)

Legal Research Counsel
For Lawyers

For the past 20 years, I have provided first-rate quality legal research and writing services for private law firms, in-house counsel, arbitrators and corporations, encompassing all areas of Canadian law.

These services have included the drafting of legal argument for submission to all levels of court in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and to the Supreme Court of Canada.

Research and writing services may be tailored to your requirements and budget. Whether a memo, opinion or argument, the choice and breadth of service is up to you.

A flat fee can be agreed upon up front so as to avoid any billing surprises.

 

Legal Research Counsel
For Business Owners

In larger law firms, most legal research and writing is performed by inexperienced junior counsel.

For about the same cost, your legal issue can be researched and analyzed by counsel with 20 years of proven high-quality legal research, analysis and writing experience.

If a legal issue has arisen that affects your business directly or indirectly and you wish to know the state of the law with respect to that issue, then retaining experienced research counsel is worth considering.

A flat fee can be agreed upon up front so as to avoid any billing surprises.

 

Real Estate

I offer residential real estate and commercial lease transactional services at reasonable rates.

I am fully mobile, and appointments can be arranged to suit your availability and location.

Estate Arbitration

I offer my services as an Estate Arbitrator.

Arbitration and mediation are types of Alternate Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) processes which people use to settle disputes rather than litigating.

The main difference between these two types of ADR is the role taken on by the mediator or arbitrator, both considered neutral third parties.

A mediator does not make a decision, but rather works with the parties to assist in finding a solution to the dispute between them. An arbitrator makes a decision based upon evidence presented in arbitration proceedings. The decision of the arbitrator, unless otherwise agreed, is binding on the parties.

Contested wills, challenges to probate, breach of trust and disinheritance issues are examples of matters that may be arbitrated.

Derek W. Jackson, LL.B.

I am a graduate of the University of Victoria Law School. 

I have over 20 years of legal research and writing experience, providing research, opinions and argument in all areas from Administrative law to Workers’ Compensation.

Over the years, I have researched and submitted written material to all levels of court in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and to the Supreme Court of Canada.

Although most of the research has focused upon Canadian law and principle, I also have considerable experience in locating the law of other jurisdictions, such as from the U.K. and the U.S.

My clients include sole practitioners, private law firms, in-house counsel of oil and gas companies, arbitrators and commercial businesses.
