Managing Partner


We are a firm of diverse professionals. Our success is proof that there is value in diverse professionals working together for the common goal of adding value to the lives of their clients.
We do not waste your time or money. As skilled negotiators inside and outside the courtroom, we work hard to resolve disputes early and amicably when possible.
With decades of experience in transactions and litigation, we know how to develop winning strategy for our clients. Working hand in hand with our clients, we advance their interests and resolve their legal issues both in and out of court. We have successfully represented thousands of clients throughout Calgary and beyond.
We are not aggressive. We are assertive. The aggressive lawyer looks for conflict. The assertive lawyer looks for resolution while not being a push over. We strive to achieve fair, long-term results, not wage a war for short-term gains. Not every dispute warrants protracted litigation, particularly if the claim can be resolved efficiently at the outset. However, for those claims that cannot be resolved in a r reasonable manner, a targeted strategy can often result in an outcome that is both favourable to the client and mindful of the business costs of litigation. We set reasonable budgets and alternative fee arrangements that provide clients with cost certainty throughout the life of a dispute. We listen to, and know, our clients’ objectives.
We are successful because we are different. Our lawyers are innovative. They understand the growing demand for a customized, progressive approach for our clients.
Community service has always been an integral part of Osuji & Smith, and our firm will continue to support deserving organizations by giving back. We currently volunteer with Legal Aid and the Lawyer Referral Service. Our Managing Partner currently runs a monthly legal clinic in the Calgary North East area in collaboration with Aspen Family & Community Network Society.
