For the past twenty years I have worked with individuals and companies to resolve land use and development issues.

Jeff Frame*

I have for the past twenty years worked with individuals and companies to resolve land use and development issues: sometimes through negotiation; sometimes through litigation; oftentimes through a bit of both. I enjoy my work. I enjoy the challenge of identifying and resolving complex problems or sets of problems. I find negotiating solutions to difficult situations, rewarding. Where negotiation is not the solution, I am up for the fight: after all, it's what I do.

I have:

  • •Protected a rancher's right to limit a neighbour's access over a registered easement
  • •Represented owners who built retaining walls or docks along shorelines
  • •Removed a member of a city council for lying during an election
  • •Terminated an access easement to the second story of an adjoining building
  • •Established an owner's right to continue with a lawful nonconforming use of his land
  • •Defended a vendor wrongfully accused of defrauding the purchasers
  • •Collected a realtor's commission on a sale that the realtor did not know about
  • •Recovered from a local government the value of land it had sold at a tax sale
  • •Forced a co-owner to sell his interest in a lakefront property
  • •Obtained compensation for expropriated landowners
  • •Advised numerous businesses and owners navigating through the myriad of laws, rules, policies, and regulations affecting the use and development of land.
  • •Represented landowners confronted by mining companies wanting entry
  • •Set aside an expropriation bylaw as being beyond the government's authority
  • •Presented at the 2014 Land Summit on B.C. mineral tenure legislation
  • •Presented at the B.C. Expropriation Association on the enforceability of positive covenants
  • •Presented at Thompson Rivers University on Public Roads
