Bruce Geiger is a Partner in the Edmonton office of Miller Thomson.
Bruce advises businesses at all stages of development, including in relation to start-ups, shareholder/loan capitalizations, shareholder and partnership agreements, employee/shareholder compensation and equity plans, acquisitions, family transition/restructurings (both within estate plans, and during ownership or generational transitions), debt/equity financings, and sales/divestitures.
His clients operate in a wide variety of sectors, including professional services, real estate development, franchising, technology, manufacturing, construction, oilfield services and distribution.
Bruce takes a pragmatic, wholistic and solution based approach which addresses the client’s goals, and draws upon his broad experience in order to provide a complete, multifaceted solution to best achieve those goals. His clients draw upon his extensive experience in corporate commercial law, mergers & acquisitions, real estate development and financial services, with a particular focus in cross border transactions, tax, IT/intellectual property and corporate commercial law. His services are particularly aligned with the needs of entrepreneurial clients.
His approach is to put into practice clear communication, and the effective translation of legal issues into business risk management solutions. For many of his clients, serving as a trusted advisor includes oversight and guidance in relation to other legal and professional services, including domestic and international litigation, reorganizations and tax planning, and intellectual property commercialization. This role frequently entails working in close cooperation with the “home office” for mature private/family enterprises, and in an advisory board capacity for select clients.
Bruce has a particular interest in advising emerging businesses, including tech start-ups and commercialization ventures. He has served as embedded counsel for a high growth technology company, and understands the need for clear communication, with the goal of providing timely, integrated legal advice that supports a balanced business solution within the desired risk criteria.
Bruce enjoys dealing with people, and takes a keen interest in learning what makes their matters unique. He strives to provide prompt and effective legal service in furtherance of long term service relationships, characterized by positive engagement and service with the utmost integrity.
Bruce enjoys spending his free time with his wife and children.
