Representative Work

Pertman v. Grandin Park Properties Inc. (Amacon Development), 2015 ABQB 262 and 2016 ABCA 148

Jordan acted as co-counsel for the defence of a claim in the approximate amount of $1.5 million, relating to a parking and access easement for a mixed-use commercial complex development. The result was the successful resistance of a originating application with costs against the applicant and the establishment of a precedent on the merger of express and implied easements never before addressed in Canada. This decision was later upheld by the Court of Appeal.
