Gerald is known as Jerry to his clients and friends. For over 40 years he has proven himself as a both a successful litigator and solicitor in Calgary. He joined Goodfellow & Schuettlaw in November 2020, bringing with him extensive and varied experience in a number of diverse areas of the law.
Jerry has been involved in a number of reported and unreported decisions in the Alberta Courts. His experience includes his successful representation of a borrower in defending a default on a $16,000,000 debenture. It also includes defending an employer in a wrongful dismissal action during an economic recession. There, 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. He has considerable experience in representing clients in large commercial transactions, financings, and contracts.
Jerry is very pleased to have become a member of the firm, and to reunite with Don Goodfellow under whom he mentored over 40 years ago.
Jerry is married and has two grown daughters and three incredibly adorable grandchildren. In his spare time, he runs, bikes, plays tennis and is continuously looking for people with whom he can speak and practice his Spanish.
