Kevin Schouten is a business lawyer who applies years of practical corporate experience in helping clients involved in sophisticated commercial transactions with an Alberta connection. He advises businesses of all sizes throughout Canada with corporate and commercial law issues, such as share and asset acquisitions, business formations, drafting and interpreting commercial contracts and commercial property matters, including both acquisitions and commercial leasing. Kevin leads 18 lawyers as our business practice group leader and also heads the firm's residential real estate department with a team of paralegals.

Kevin thinks of himself as a business person who happens to be a lawyer. "For many years as a business person, I consistently saw lawyers impeding deals. I did not want to be that lawyer. I view my role as making sure my clients understand the risks in a transaction's deal-points, without using legalese. Then, I let my clients decide how to handle an issue as it is their money."

Many professional service providers turn to Kevin. He regularly handles sales and acquisitions for dentists, veterinarians, therapists, architects, physicians and other professionals in Alberta. Kevin estimates that he has handled 150 mergers and acquisitions over the last six or seven years.

In addition to M&A and commercial law, Kevin represents corporate clients in business dissolutions, reorganizations, shareholder agreements, various commercial agreements and often represents borrowers in debt financing matters. "I'm often a business resource in commercial litigation cases, where I can help explain the underlying issues in a contested commercial claim or dispute."

Outside of Work

Kevin is a veteran baseball, hockey and lacrosse coach who still plays hockey himself. "I have two knee surgeries and one shoulder surgery to prove it."
