OVERVIEW

Gerald is known as Jerry to his clients and friends. For over 40 years he has proven himself as both a successful litigator and solicitor in Calgary. He joined Goodfellow & Schuettlaw in November 2020, bringing with him extensive and varied experience in diverse areas of the law.


Jerry has been involved in a number of reported and unreported decisions in the Alberta Courts. These include his successful representation of a borrower in defending a default on a $16,000,000 debenture. In addition, he defended an employer in a wrongful dismissal action during an economic recession. In this, the Court refused to extend the employee notice period given the availability of government assistance.


He is as comfortable in the corporate boardroom as he is in the courtroom. Jerry has considerable experience in representing clients in large commercial transactions, financings, and contracts.
When Jerry became a member of the firm, he also reunited with Don Goodfellow under whom he articled over 40 years ago.


Jerry is married and has two grown daughters and three incredibly adorable grandchildren. In his spare time, he runs, bikes, and plays tennis.


In addition to his practice as a lawyer, Jerry is currently working towards a degree in Latin American Studies at the University of Calgary. This has enabled him to work on and  improve his Spanish speaking, writing, and comprehension.
