As a long-time Edmonton member of the firm’s Litigation Group, Greg Harding has a wide-ranging, respected practice in both Alberta and the Northwest Territories. His clients likewise range from individuals and families; to corporations; to institutional and public sector clients, including government. Clients seek Greg's help in areas of the law such as:

  • Estate disputes, including contested wills, will interpretation, powers of attorney, passing of accounts.
  • Post-secondary education matters for universities and colleges. (For example, governance and policy, donations, trusts and endowments and student issues, including discipline and academic affairs.)
  • Pension matters and issues in both the private and public sectors. (For example, policy advice and opinion work and representation in contested matters.)
  • Constitutional and Administrative law, including Charter of Rights and Human Rights and regulatory matters.
  • Commercial matters, including corporate and shareholder disputes, insurance issues and construction litigation.

These areas have Greg representing clients before a variety of boards and tribunals as well as in the courts. He also promotes and regularly participates in mediation, arbitration and dispute resolution procedures, including judicial dispute resolution.

Greg is a team-player who puts an emphasis on being responsive to clients and those with whom he works. He also values what professionalism and civility can bring to the table in solving problems. As he puts it, "having lawyers on each side who can effectively communicate with one another is typically of great benefit to clients -- particularly so in contentious matters or wherever there are strained relationships."

As Greg says, "the client’s problem becomes our problem." Relying upon hard work, Greg seeks to put himself in the shoes of his clients, to effectively master the facts and issues, and to chart an effective path to resolution. In litigation matters, this typically means that Greg’s goal is not to get to court but, instead, to use the litigation process and associated measures as a way of arriving at practical and creative solutions.

Outside of Work

Complementing his appreciation for "all things music," Greg and his wife are keen travelers -- be it trips afar or hitching-up their tear-drop RV for North American destinations. In either case, he will likely have packed his blues harmonica just in case an opportunity for an impromptu jam arises.
